View hidden files on Mac OS X

On this topic:


Enable viewing of hidden files in Mac OS X can be quite a simple command. In the terminal we enter:

Code:
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true
killall finder

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

Code:
defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool false
killall finder

Another method. While in Finder, click:

Code:
Cmd + shift + g

and enter the path to the folder in which we want to look.
