a.out is an ancient unix fileformat, that is still abused as default name in
gcc. (even though gcc generates ELF since at least 1996)

What other files are generated

- If it is a main program, "myfile" should have been created in addition. Run it.
- if it is a unit (library) "myfile.ppu" should have been generated.
