Bug#678819: vnstati: Output to stdout does not work

Package: vnstati
Version: 1.11-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
The manpage for vnstati says:
	-o, --output file
              Write png image to file and exit. Output can be directed to std‐
              out by giving "-" as filename.

However, it looks like output to stdout is not supported

$ vnstati -i wlan0 -o -
At least output mode and file parameter needs to be given.
Use -? or --help for getting short help.

I've tried piping it to an image viewer, unsuccessfully. Is the manpage outdated?
This feature would be welcome :)
