So, my manager, in zsh, can do the following:

Does anyone have any ideas what the syntax in bash is? I've been playing
with this for hours. My manager says that zsh treats the cat'd key as a
file, while if you try it with bash, replacing the = with <, it asks for
the passphrase of what must be a socket.


The document http://zsh.sourceforge.net/Intro/intro_7.html

has some description about =(…)

Not a zsh user myself
