Is there any way of listing the contents of an R binary
file created with save() ? i.e.:

assuming a,b,c,d are large objects, I save them to "x":


Is there any way of listing the objects within x
(without actually attach("x") or load("x")) ?

Also, assuming we can either list x or remember
its contents, can we load or attach selected
objects, like autoload() can do with packages?
i.e.: in the example above, load or attach
only object b.
