Ticket #4226 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Improve documentation about using /vsistdout/ for writing to standard output

Description (last modified by peifer) (diff)
OGR's BNA, CSV, GeoJSON, GeoRSS, GML, GPX, KML and PGDump seem to be able to use /vsistdout/ as output file for writing to standard output. However, only drv_pgdump.html mentions /vsistdout/. Other relevant driver pages should also mention this option.
Before I forget: consistency of aliases between /dev/stdout and /vsistdout/ could be improved between OGR drivers. As Even R wrote today on gdal-dev: Yes we probably lack consistency in that area. I think the stdout case should be removed (should not affect many people as it was unadvertized feature), and only accept /dev/stdout and /vsistdout/ which are less hacky solutions.
