How can I turn a text file into a bunch of images using imagemagick?

Say I have a text file with short lines of text (e.g. License plate numbers or radio call letters). I'd like to use imagemagick to convert this text file to a folder full of images of said text, with each line from the text file being a separate image. Preferably, I'd like the output to be named with the content. What are the magic command-line words to make this happen?

I'm on OSX Mavericks, and have managed to get imagemagick installed and working. I can generate a single test image from the command line.
Example: If a line of the file is "CU L8R", I'd like the image to be just those letters, and the filename to be CUL8R.png or similar.
Thanks, command line mavens!
