Can "diff -u" command take input from stdout?

Its man page says "If a FILE is `-', read standard input."
If so, one could feed it from "svn cat" command.

Just for record, there is "--force" flag for svn checkout command,
that allows it to create a working copy over files that were exported.
I think it should not overwrite files that has local changes, but have
not verified whether that is true.
