About -pipe

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)?

           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.
