If you run the add_members command without any arguments, it'll show you

    -r file
        A file containing addresses of the members to be added, one
        address per line.  This list of people become non-digest
        members.  If file is `-', read addresses from stdin.  Note that
        -n/--non-digest-members-file are deprecated synonyms for this option.

    -d file
        Similar to above, but these people become digest members.

So, what you should be doing is something like this:

  echo "user at address.com" | ./add_members -r - listname

Consider it done :)
