In older copies of GIMP this was handled via the "Ascii To Image" 
(asc2img.scm) script. However, Sven Neumann removed it from the source tree on 
December 12, 2004 stating it was "... beyond repair and the functionality is 
provided by the text tool itself."

I have not found any directly callable PDB equivalent to the feature of the 
text tool which allows you to use the content of a file. The only option would 
be to repair the old "unrepairable" script.
