Not sure what you mean.

1.  "add_member" and the like work better when the user information is 
in a file.  It makes it much easier because of special characters, etc. 
   So if you are asking how to pass the information directly on the 
command line, I recommend against it.

2.  If you mean that you want to create a file with lists of names to 
use for "add_member", etc., then I recommend using the following format:

User First Middle and Last Name <emailaddress at domain.tld>

I do this all the time, and it has the advantage of leaving a record of 
the users you added that way.
