Method to load object from a file or a connection
Method to load object from a file or a connection, which previously have been saved using
# S3 method for default loadObject(file, path=NULL, format=c("auto", "xdr", "rds"), ...)
A filename or
connectionto read the object from.
The path where the file exists.
The main difference from this method and
load() in the
base package, is that this one returns the object read rather
than storing it in the global environment by its default name.
This makes it possible to load objects back using any variable name.
Returns the saved object.
