Showing hidden SVN files in OS X

Basic stuff here but a useful reference for me and maybe others nonetheless. This Terminal command will make the .svn hidden folders and files visible and hopefully as a consequence reduce any cross-project file conflicts arising from careless copy/pasting.

Enter this command in Terminal:

defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES

After running the command, you need to restart Finder. Do this by running the following command:

killall Finder

To undo this, repeat the above commands and switch the YES to a NO.
