dired-show-dotfiles: preference variable

Default value: 3

The dired command can hide files and directories whose names start with a period character. The - subcommand toggles whether such items are hidden at all, while bits in this variable select which items will still be shown even when hiding is enabled. The bit 1 means the . entry for a directory will always be shown, and the bit 2 means the .. entry will always be shown. The 4 bit means all other directory names will be shown, even if their names start with a period. The 8 bit means non-directories (including ordinary files) will be shown, even if their names start with a period.

For ftp:// files, see the ftp-compatible-dirs variable. For scp:// files, note that certain sftp servers may not display hidden files under any circumstances.
