10.6: A Service to show/hide hidden files
Authored by: mchagers on Jul 21, '10 01:46:52AM

When I tried this script in automator I got the error:
SHOWHIDDEN=1: Command not found
It worked when I changed the shell selection from the default /bin/tcsh to /bin/bash with the popup menu at the top of the Run Shell Scripts block.
Perhaps /bin/tcsh isn't always the default shell, but in my case it was, so this may help some other people as well.
