OS X: How to see hidden files in Open and Save dialogs?

However, there are moments when we need to change, for example, the PATH, or some shell aliases, or some startup configurations. In other words, we need to edit such hidden files.
Mac OS X provides a simple (but totally secretive) way to handle this: simply press Shift-Command-Period to toggle the display of hidden files in Open or Save dialogs. This only works when the triangular button to expand the dialogs was clicked.
