Default Draw lines and arcs from file

I have file which contain program for router. I want to be able to draw these information in Corel. The program is plain text.

My first idea was to use VBscript. But I didn't find out how to open text file and read it. So then I decided to go to CorelScript but even there I didn't find out how to do it. Any idea?

Default Read File

If the file is HPGL or DXF CorelDRAW should be able to import the drawing just fine. If it is something else you can use VBA to read the file and recreate the lines and arcs, there are several examples on this site here is one to get you started:

Import text file to create shapes

Best of luck,
