Comment #6 on issue 247 by Ability to redirect file output to stdout

For -o, you can do:
  protoc my.proto -o/dev/stdout

This just doesn't work with --java_out (or whatever lanugage) because it would interpret /dev/stdout to be a directory and would try to create files inside it, which would fail.
