Which files extensions are generated at various phases of compiler?
Depends on the language, and the compiler / linker combo. Some go straight to executable, others can produce a file per pass - and there can be a lot of passes!
You've tagged it with Linux. On Linux the extension does not matter at all. For example, gcc typically generates filename.out as the output binary. But you could rename it to just filename if you wanted. Doesn't affect anything.
The files generated vary from system to system and even compiler to compiler. You should read the compiler documentation to get this information.
