Hello Hannah,

Thanks for your reply.

Terrific, there is no syntax for such thing in ./add_members --help!!!

This syntax is working:
echo '"firstname lastname" <user at domain.example>' | ./add_members -r - testlist2

Could you please tell what syntax should I use if I have file with the list of users, like following:
firstname1 lastname1 <user1 at domain.com>
firstname2 lastname2 <user2 at domain.com>

Best Regards,
Leon Kolchinsky

There're a few things wrong with that command line.

First, you'd probably have to quote the special characters, ", <, and >.

Second, with "-r -" you specify that add_members will read the addresses of the members to add from standard input.

I.e. you could try something like
  echo '"firstname lastname" <user at domain.example>' |
    add_members -r - listname
