Default How to assign more CPU cores to terminal on Mac?

Hi, all,

When running perl scripts on our Mac (our super computer with 16 CPU cores and 32 GB RAM), I found only one core is in process (100%). Other 15 cores are less than 5%. I feel the speed is quite slow when I try to analyze large datasets. But when I run the CLC workbench, all cores are active at one time. So is there anyway I can assign CPU cores to the terminal or my perl program? Or there is other reasons I don't figure out. Hope to get help.
Thank you in advance.

perl cant be threaded so you would need to run a script to split the jobs into different instances of perl all running at the same time
