I hope this helps you .
Don't use $input as the name of a variable as that's an automatic variable in PowerShell (see help about_Automatic_Variables).
code :
"test" | myexecutable.exe

I hope this helps . Read-Host is a simple option for getting string input from a user.
code :
$name = Read-Host 'What is your username?'
$pass = Read-Host 'What is your password?' -AsSecureString
[Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal]::PtrToStringAuto(
    [Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal]::SecureStringToBSTR($pass))
PS> $Host.UI.Prompt

it helps some times When crafting a programmatic solution that deals with a function originally designed to request input from the user, it is generally advisable to devise a means to pass a value in the form of an argument or have the value derived from a variable.
For example, the author of the function at issue previously created an additional argument in a commit on April 3, 2015 -- the following is the diff -- i.e., - means removed, + means added.
code :
-(defun mc/mark-all-in-region (beg end)
+(defun mc/mark-all-in-region (beg end &optional search)
   "Find and mark all the parts in the region matching the given search"
   (interactive "r")
-  (let ((search (read-from-minibuffer "Mark all in region: "))
+  (let ((search (or search (read-from-minibuffer "Mark all in region: ")))
         (case-fold-search nil))
     (if (string= search "")
         (message "Mark aborted")

I hope this helps . The biggest problem is displaying the message to the user because it has to run interactively in that user session.
One method, if you just want to display a message that the computer is about to shutdown, and you don't want them to be able to cancel, would be to leverage the remote shutdown command:
code :
shutdown -m //computername -r -f -c "MESSAGE" -t 120
psexec.exe \\computername -I message.vbs

like below fixes the issue This is rather a unusual use case where I had to make a legacy system to work. , You can use subprocess.Popen to provide input to a process:
code :
from subprocess import Popen, PIPE
p = Popen('batch_test.bat', stdin=PIPE, stdout=PIPE)
output, _ = p.communicate(b'Y\n')
