Disassemble some shell code

echo -ne "<shellcode>" | x86dis -e 0 -s intel
This one liner takes the shell code that you can grab off of the web and disassemble it into readable assembly so you can validate the code does what it says, before using it. The shell code in the above example is from http://www.shell-storm.org/shellcode/files/shellcode-623.php You can replace "-s intel" with "-s att" to get AT&T format disassembly.
Sample Output
echo -ne "\x31\xC0\xB0\x01\x31\xDB\xCD\x80" | x86dis -e 0 -s intel
00000000 31 C0                          xor     eax, eax
00000002 B0 01                          mov     al, 0x01
00000004 31 DB                          xor     ebx, ebx
00000006 CD 80                          int     0x80
