What Others Think

With Mac OS X version 10.3, hdid calls the DiskImages.framework and its helpers take care of any out-of-kernel image serving duties. As of Mac OS X 10.4, hdid calls through to hdiutil attach. hdid exists primarily for backwards compatibility. Generally, hdiutil attach should be used instead of hdid. (See man page of hdid for more information)
