Force the Finder to show text file previews
Authored by: Paul Burney on May 12, '03 10:34:35AM
Good hint. Please note that the backslash before the ; has been deleted by the mysterious geek log slashinator. Also, the command shown requires /Developer/Tools to be in your path. You may have better luck with this:

find . -name '*.php' -exec /Developer/Tools/SetFile -t {} \;

While this terminal tricks are really appreciated, could you please explain word by word what you are telling the Terminal to do? That way one could understand what that really does and take more profit from them in the future.
