it will not work, `tool=add` requires input in GRASS ASCII format [1].
In this case if you don't define option `input` it reads stdin. It can
be confusing for the user. The correct usage is

v.edit -n map=<map> tool=add << EOF
> P 1 1
> 170402 374124
> 1 1


v.edit -n map=<map> tool=add input=<file>

In this case add new point with category 1 (layer 1) is added.
