Thanks for the hint. Is there a specific reason why the csv driver isn't 
able to use /dev/stdout, similar to the kml driver [1] ?



$ ogr2ogr -f kml /dev/stdout test.shp
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<kml xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2">
<Schema name="test" id="test">
         <SimpleField name="Name" type="string"></SimpleField>
         <SimpleField name="Description" type="string"></SimpleField>
         <SimpleField name="Latitude" type="string"></SimpleField>
         <SimpleField name="Longitude" type="string"></SimpleField>
         <SimpleField name="Value" type="string"></SimpleField>
         <name>First point</name>
         <ExtendedData><SchemaData schemaUrl="#test">
                 <SimpleData name="Name">First point</SimpleData>
                 <SimpleData name="Latitude">50</SimpleData>
