  get url ("file:"& tFile)

...does the same as:

  open file tFile for read
  read from file until EOF
  close file tFile

It's just more convenient than using the three-line method (which can be very useful if you need for fine-grained control over the read, such as reading in chunks or from a particular offset).

Unless your files are much bigger than 100 MBs you should find loading them into memory well worth the effort for the time saved parsing them thee.
