Arduino compiler output location on a Mac?

mac OSX 10.7 (Lion) and Arduino IDE 1.0.5 for mac

I verbosed the compiler output and got:

/var/folders/k6/w0wrbkrn4tz32phz5cl0syx0000fs7/T/build597971112654782375.tmp/strandtest.cpp.elf
/var/folders/k6/w0wrbkrn4tz32phz5cl0syx0000fs7/T/build597971112654782375.tmp/strandtest.cpp.hex

Where do I point my finder to get to these files? There is no /var/folders directly off the root of my HDD.

(And, BTW... I plan on downloading these to a Wicked Devices Nanode 5 via sketchgarden. Is it likely to want the .hex file or the .elf file?)

Thank you for your insight and advice!

The folder is there, it's just set invisible.

In the 'Go' menu of Finder select 'Go to Folder...' and paste in the folder path:
/var/folders/k6/w0wrbkrn4tz32phz5cl0syx0000fs7/T/build597971112654782375.tmp/

Os X:

First, close the arduino IDE and locate your preferences.txt in /Users//Library/Arduino/preferences.txt and change/add

build.path=/Users/<USERNAME>/Documents/Arduino/build

Of course, replace with your username. Make sure the folder exists.

The .hex file is generally the one you feed to an uploader because that has the raw object code in it.

build.path=/Users/<USERNAME>/Documents/Arduino/build

You should be able to use the Unix shortcut:

build.path=~/Documents/Arduino/build

The ‘~’ (tilde?) means “the current user’s home directory”
