    You can type this into Terminal to reveal:
    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
    killall Finder

    Type this in to hide:
    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
    killall Finder

    And you can use Automator with the Run Shell Script and enter one of those, save it as a plug-in for Finder. Enter the other and save it as another plugin for Finder. That way you can right-click and hide/reveal all those hidden files.
