Exchange 2010 add-mailboxfolderpermission powershell help

Hello,  

I need to assign the "limiteddetails" permission to a large number of users.

I can assign individually with:

add-mailboxfolderpermission -identity mailboxowner@domain.com:\Calendar -User "Name Of the Guy that gets the permission" -accessrights LimitedDetails

The problem is, I need to assign this to large numbers of users and doing this line by line is not an option.

Is there either a gui way of doing this?

Or can someone that is good at powershell tell me how to automate this?    I would love to be able to have a text file with a list of names, or something.

thanks
