 I just ran that command with BASH; it works just fine. The process
substitution notation is the same. Better still, do:

$ (diff <(find / | sort) <(cat /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.list | sort) | tee
/tmp/hd-dpkg.diff) | less

... so the output gets saved.  It takes a long time to run the find on 
large hard drives!
