It stands for assembler output. Its a default executable file generated by gcc if you don t specify the name of the output file while compiling using gcc. to specify name of the output file option used is -o.
let hello.c is your source file
$gcc -o hello -Wall hello.c
in this hello is the name of output file and cmd to execute it is
if u don t specify it i.e
$gcc -Wall hello.c
then a.out will be your output file.
