About -pipe

Hi,

I see this. What temporary files are generated when compiling a C file
to .o, .so or executable? Is there a way to show what those files are?

When -pipe can be used, will it always result in a speed-up (since
disk operations are removed)?

       -pipe
           Use pipes rather than temporary files for communication between the
           various stages of compilation.  This fails to work on some systems
           where the assembler is unable to read from a pipe; but the GNU
           assembler has no trouble.
