Note that both require exclusive access to the file. If you want shared 
access (e.g. to read a file that some other process has open for 
writing, like a log file) you have to use lower level functions or use 
streams (which, as Hans-Peter says, lack a ReadLn method).
It's a pity that neither the standard file operations nor loadfromfile 
have a mean to specify shared access (or maybe they do but I couldn't 
find it).
