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.
