How to Show Hidden Files in Finder

Just found this great tip on David Valeri's blog (http://davidvaleri.wordpress.com/2010/12/23/how-i-learned-to-stop-worrying-and-love-os-x-for-java-development/#more-118). If you ever wonder how to show hidden files in Mac OS X Finder here is the procedure to enable it:

Open a new Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal) window and type:

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

and to disable it:

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE

Don't forget to restart Finder after you enable/disable this setting.
