Checkout a file revision to stdout?

Is there any way to checkout a specific revision of a file to standard
output, rather than creating a file?

The real reason for wanting to do this is to find which revision of a
file a particular piece of text first appeared.

I wrote a script called rcsgrep a long time ago that checked out files
on the main trunk only directly from the ,v file in the archive, and
grepped through each one in turn.  So I could use that.  I just
wondered if there was a better way.
