Does Arduino IDE1.0 save compiled hex files after it loaded the sketch? Where to?

I'd love to have the hex file that the compiler creates so I can load it later with avrdude. No further editing will be done, so I don't really need the IDE - can do it from command string. I've looked and looked and can't find the hex files. How come? Does IDE delete them after they're uploaded?

Thanks!
