input from file - quick question

Could someone share a few examples on how to pass file parameter to the powershell script and perform its function reading inputs from a file as its argument ?
powershell.exe myscript filename.txt
where filename.txt contains a list of hostnames:

You put a parameter block at the beginning of the script:
Within the script, $filename will contain whatever file name was passed. You would run the script like this:
Or more properly:
myscript -filename filename.txt
And in either case, $filename would contain "filename.txt." You could then read that file by using Get-Content.
If you want to provide the CONTENTS of the file as a parameter value:
foreach ($computer in $computername)
# $computer contains one computer name at a time
And run as:
Myscript -computername (Get-Content names.txt)
Where names.txt contains one name per line.
