I'd thought of that, but was hoping there was an easier way.

Thanks for the info

You could hack (installed next to iirc) to read from a
list pretty easily. Or write your own -S prog program to do the same. Look
at SWISH::Prog on the CPAN to aid in that direction (you could create an
Aggregator that simply iterates over the lines in the file).

But there is no read-from-file option built-in that I am aware of.
