hdik(8) 						    BSD System Manager's Manual 						   hdik(8)

NAME
hdik -- lightweight tool to attach and mount disk images in-kernel SYNOPSIS
hdik imagefile [options] hdik -e device DESCRIPTION
hdik is a simple tool that can be used to attach disk images directly to the DiskImages driver. The end result is functionally similar to passing -kernel to hdiutil(1)'s attach verb. hdik does not rely upon the presence of DiskImages or other high-level frameworks. The DiskImages driver only supports a selection of disk image formats: UDRW, UDRO, UDZO, ULFO, SPARSE (UDSP). It also supports shadow files. hdiutil(1)'s imageinfo verb indicates whether a particular image is kernel compatible. hdik requires root access to perform its functions. In the first form, an image to attach must be provided: imagefile path to the disk image file to attach. In its second form, hdik issues an eject command to the specified device. The argument is the full device node path (e.g. /dev/disk2). Any volumes mounted from the device must be unmounted first, or the command will fail. See umount(8). OPTIONS
-shadow [shadowfile] Use a shadow file in conjunction with the data in the image. This option prevents modification of the original image and allows read-only images to be used as read/write images. When blocks are being read from the image, blocks present in the shadow file override blocks in the base image. When blocks are being written, the writes will be redirected to the shadow file. If not specified, -shadow defaults to <imagename>.shadow. If the shadow file does not exist, it is created. -nomount Suppress automatic mounting of filesystems contained within the image. This will result in /dev entries being created, but will not mount any volumes. -drivekey keyname=value Specify a key/value pair for the IOHDIXHDDrive object created (shows up in the IOKit registry of devices which is viewable with ioreg(8)).
