Anyone have a favourite command line tool for converting syntax definition files into diagrams?

Wikipedia, "Syntax diagram”, points to multiple tools, some in Javascript.
I’ve seen other compiler tools requiring Java: lots of overhead for command line.

I found this tool, written in C, on github.
Compiles and runs, though things like man pages aren’t fully supported.
Seems to support a reasonable range of input files.
