like said

 file ="readfile.txt", "r")
     while (line = file.gets)
         puts "#{counter}: #{line}"
         counter = counter + 1
 rescue => err
     puts "Exception: #{err}"

the  above script reads your readfile.txt line by line,
the string variable "line" can be inturn splitted using = sign as the separator
and then splitted string could be copied into a hashed array

by the Watir is just a browser driver (the best one :), inorder to do
all such things you need to know Ruby.
