Remove hidden files generated by Mac OS Finder

I've had a number of solutions during the years for removing hidden files that show up in DOS based systems such as the DS_STORE and resource forks. Traditionally, I've removed them with a recursive shell 'rm' command. I did not know about this command though:
You can use it like this:
sudo dot_clean -m /Volumes/NAME_OF_DISK
This should go and remove any Trashes, Spotlight, or Finder files that are stored on the drive.
