Enabling the viewing of hidden files in Mac OS X is a fairly simple command. In the terminal, enter:

The code:

killall finder

If you are tired of this "feature" in the terminal, enter:

The code:

killall finder

Another method, While in Finder, click:

The code:
Cmd + shift + g

and enter the path to the folder we want to look into.
