PROJ.4 does not include any support for accessing feature formats like
shapefiles.  You could convert a stream of text points from one coordinate
system to the other like:

   cs2cs +init=epsg:3008 +to +init=epsg:4326 < 3008.txt > 4326.txt

I shall avoid asking why you wish to avoid ogr2ogr despite my curiosity.
