This is common in command-line-oriented applications.  What actually
happened was that the program ran with the default arguments (probably
none), returned, and exited.  The only reason you saw anything happen at
all is because somewhere there's an option set that tells windows 'run in
command window' or whatever the equivalent of 'run in terminal' is, so it
showed one for as long as the process existed. . . when the command
finished, the process died and the window went away.

I believe you're listed as an additional resource on the sql help page;
you're also generally linked all over the forum. . . the 'related:' prefix
(i believe) finds sites linked to and linked from the given site, as well
probably as some more complex things testing whether you're about the same
things (like, are you linked to from the same pages, do you link to the
same pages, etc.).
