Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) available programs

Is there a program that will automatically create an Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD) by analyzing an Oracle database?  I have read-only access, but can draw most information out of the database via Oracle's SQL Developer.

    microsoft visio for enterprise architect edition (comes with visual studio) has a reverse engineer function in the database menu once you've chosen a database diagram.
    TOAD has an erd diagrammer.
    Rational Rose and Data Modeler has an erd diagrammer.
    RapidSQL has a standalone product that will do it.

    All of them are kind of pricey.

    I'm a ms developer and have visual studio, so I use that one.  It's very easy to use.

    Actually the best which is free with a 30 day eval is Happy Fish 3.  I just found that and it worked great.
