    Finder - possible to view dot prefixed files?
    Like you can do via "ls -a" in Terminal, is there a way to see the dot whatever files in Finder? Thanks in advance.

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    in terminal

    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
    killall Finder


    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
    killall Finder

    will hide them again
