Thanks for the info, but like 90% of deskop users, I run Windows. I gave up on deskop Linux, even though I give it a try every year or so just to check it out.

I'm not arguing. It's just that Fossil is such a great SCM application that I guess it would benefit even more users if it were available as a GUI application instead of a CLI — which, I would venture, very few non-developers, in this day and age, even know there is such as thing.)

There may not be a GUI for Windows (I don’t use Windows) but there is is a nice 
‘Tortoise-like’ GUI for Fossil on macOS - Snail Fossil.

I was asking this naïve question because
1. SQLite is a DLL + EXE package
2. There's no maintained GUI for Fossil.
