In the Pikchr documentation webpage (https://pikchr.org/home/doc/trunk/doc/integrate.md) there is a typo in section "Flags passed to pikchr()": "... in the even of an error ..." should be "... in the event of an error ...".

Just curious: Doug, why were you reading that document? Are you integrating Pikchr into some application that you control? Are you at liberty to tell us about it? If so, and if you are willing, please provide feedback regarding your experiences with Pikchr over on the Pikchr forum.

Richard, I asked you for your process to make the diagrams for SQLITE back in June. You graciously gave me a link to your process. I downloaded the stuff at the end of the link and worked on it for at least a month trying to get it to work. Alas, I was not smart enough to follow all the myriad threads to all the various tools and stopped trying before success.
I still have the need to create diagrams to document my software. Pikchr looks simple to use, is self-contained, and has no dependencies. So I took a look at the documentation to learn about it. I was ready to use it, but (one more alas) could not find pre-compiled executables. Creating an executable from a .c file is simple on linux but not simple on Windows 10 (which is my platform of choice). I will download it and probably use it. I get tired of just one more learning curve.
When I figure out how to compile it, is there a way to give it back to Pikchr to place in their /files folder? It probably needs version control with version numbers... Anyway, thanks for pointing the way to a valuable tool for my tool chest.
