It represents a space in memory for the data from the file to be received into.

It does not read data from the file into registers. The data is read into memory, and from there you can load parts of it into registers, and manipulate it. If it is in ASCII you can convert it to binary or whatever. In assembler you get to do all the work.

Are you familiar with file operations in a high level language like C, PASCAL or BASIC?
