Do "objdump -d a.out" where a.out is the executable. If you want more interactive dissassembly (i.e. jump and call referencing) get ldasm which is a gui frontend for objdump.

Run this command: 'objdump -d file' where file is the executable.

bobwall mentioned that ldasm is just a gui frontend. Start it up and off you go...

For reference however, all good command line apps will give you some usage details by running "appname --help"
