This is more of a coding area, but with enough grey area to be
applicable here I think.

Does anyone know of a FOSS tool that can connect to an existing
database, and generate database diagram (ERD)?  I'm targeting MySQL for
now, but finding something generic would be nice.

I know that ERWin on the proprietary side (and after some large cash
outlay) can do this, and I think Rational Rose can as well.  But is
there something on the FOSS side of the fence?

I want to get involved in some projects, but need to understand their
database models, which are at various degrees of documentation (but none
seem to have a diagram available).

Thanks for the input.

Shawn
