If you have associated .py files with python.exe, then you can do:

myfile.py < myinput.txt

Otherwise it's:

python myfile.py < myinput.txt

Although I did find with MKS Toolkit installed, if the first line is:

#!/usr/bin/env python

Then you can name the script 'myfile' and do:

. myfile < myinput
