I was reading the documentation of find here
and came across the following two lines:

find originals -name '*.jpg' | xargs -1 makeallsizes

find originals -name '*.jpg' | xargs -1 -P 2 makeallsizes

I think this *-1* (hyphen one) should be *-l* (hyphen lowercase L). I can't
find any explanation of an argument that's -1 (hyphen one); that's why I'm
guessing it should be -l (hyphen lowercase L).

Assuming that I'm correct, why do we need the -l here?
