What would you like to do?
Update a program Icon
If you only want to update one Application icon, ie, in just touch the folder. (I've read you need to do the Info.plist as well sometimes, although I've never needed to.)
Close the finder windows and:
touch /Applications/
touch /Applications/
You can refresh the dock icon cache using the commands above, also do a killall Dock to restart it. Personally I would just drag the application in question, off the dock and re-start / keep in dock, because this is generally a one off thing. As always, script it if possible / and you're doing it a lot.
