Short of an exhaustive search of the filesystem it's on, block by
block, perhaps with a file recovery tool of some kind, no, I don't know
of any easy way.  And once the process that has the file open is gone,
those blocks are free for the filesystem to reclaim and use for other
purposes, so if you want to do any kind of analysis, do it now, before
the process ends.
