How to read .txt data used by sampleDict?

I want to use sampleDict to get the velocity on a line. Since there are too many lines I need to plot, therefore it is challenging to input the start point and end point by hands. I got the coordinates of all the points in .txt file (x,y,z). Do you know how to read these data in sampleDict? I think we need a loop to use all these points, right? I really appreciate someone can give some hints!

i have two ideas for doing this:
1- OpenFOAM features called as code stream
2- write a bash-script to import such data using sed

Greetings to all!
@Ye: If you don't manage to figure this out by yourself, please share an example of 2-3 lines in the TXT form, as well as the resulting "sampleDict" script you expect to get from said TXT file. I ask this because it'll be a lot easier to make any script once the materials are available.
As for scripting, it could be done with any number of possible tools, such as:
