Adding permission to list using powershell


$site = get-spsite("http://MySPSite")
$web = $site.RootWeb
$list = $web.Lists["MyList"]
$listitem = $list.Items[0] 
$user = $web.AllUsers["Domain\User"]
$role = $web.RoleDefinitions["Full Control"]
$roleassignment = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.SPRoleAssignment($user)
$roleassignment.RoleDefinitionBindings.Add($role)
$listitem.RoleAssignments.Add($roleassignment)
$listitem.Update()

I’m not sure if this will break inheritance automatically, you may have to explicitly do that for this to work.
