Hidden files in Linux are represented by a dot(.) before filename and they can be listed using -a option with ls command.
Using command line, you can make a file hidden by renaming it by adding a dot before it. Let's say you have a file, named 'myfile.txt' and you want to hide it, then you can:
Code:
user~$ mv myfile.txt .myfile.txt
Then you can check that file using -a option with ls command.
