hidden files in Maverick – show/hide application script

Yesterday I needed it twice to locate over 70GB of cache/old system files on two computers, so I have got to the point that copy/paste of:

show hidden files Maverick terminal
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -boolean true
killall Finder

then to reverse:

defaults delete com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles
killall Finder

It’s simple, just the code above in script form. If you want it, just put you comment below.
