Ummm,  what is the antecedent of the pronoun "it" in the forgoing?

The structure of your sentence makes it sound like "it" refers to
***the binary file*** --- but I don't believe that's what you mean.

If you by "it" you mean an object (the object? one of the objects?) in
the saved binary file, then something like:

     y <- x

should do what you want.

Distinguish the container from the thing(s) contained.
