    yeah PHPEd, is pretty good (also got it off download.com).
    i've been using it for quite some time now and i'd recommend it to anybody. its got tons of features available.

    Actually Textpad is surprisingly sexy

    The reason being that you can configure it to use colour coding for PHP. It does not have line numbering, but a quick ctrl-g takes you to any line you want

    It beats the hell out of Notepad ...

    also you can have many files open at once and ctrl-tab between them. I have configured .sql and .xml files for colour coding also. I find it very easy compared with DW, because DW eats up too much processor speed. Also I am always wanting to copy code from one script to another, a ctrl-tab makes this super easy. The more lightweight the better for my purposes. I used to use Homesite, but it crashes all the time Of course it is totally a personal choice

    Check out this also, if there were enough developers out there keen to contribute this project might get going

    I am a die-hard UltraEdit fan, having used it since 1996, but I have to say, the Zend Studio beta is quite slick. It has all the things a real IDE should have: integrated debugging, with breakpoints, etc..., nice project management, displays code and output at the same time, and it has integration with all the other Zend tools. Also, the menus and what-all are quite snappy, compared to the first version of the Zend IDE.

    Normally I'm not an "integration-compliant" kinda guy. For example, I never was comfortable with Visual Studio. I was normally happier with UltraEdit and a browser.

    But, I can see how, in a big business environment, Zend makes PHP more palatable to programming managers, and various pointy-haired individuals. If I were in a position to run a major PHP development team, I might just want to specify Zend Studio, and the Zend debugger. The cost would probably pay for itself within a week, if it helps more people collaborate on a project efficiently.

    The only thing missing is a nice GUI to integrate it with CVS, or some other revision-control mechanism.
    The real n-tier system:

    FreeBSD -> PostgreSQL -> [any_language] -> Apache -> Mozilla/XUL

    I know this has been going on forever, but there are two interesting PHP-specific editors that have not been mentioned:

    HAPedit (stands for HTML, PHP, ASP edit) is available at
    http://hapedit.free.fr/

    This is a freeware that is rapidly developing. It has some quirkiness, but many marvelous features (and the author is rapidly improving it). Includes
    - syntax highlighting
    - code insight (pop-up syntax tips)
    - code complete (popup function/variable completion)
    like in Borland C++ Builder.
    - project management
    - PHP "compilation" (i.e. it gives the HTML output in a new window).

    Komodo by Active State (http://www.activestate.com/)
    This is *NOT* freeware - I think the full version is $295. Works for PHP, Perl, Python, Tcl and has
    - syntax highlighting,
    - integrated debugging with break points and so on, and
    - error highlighting - like in Word where it underlines misspelled words, Komodo underlines syntax errors.

    Have fun

    I've also switched to the DOS editor. It lacks everything, but I'm cool for using it because it's old school.

    im currently using editplus, but am seriously considering purchasing zend studios 2.0 standard, the $150.00 version. Has anyone had experience with it? Is it REALLY worth the money? Ive been really itching for a STABLE full fledged IDE, ive tried a couple but they wouldnt stay open for more than 5min without crashing. Another plus is that they have clients for windows, linux and osx! anyone have any comments about it?

    Hey, what about Jedit?


    Sure... Jedit uses java, but it it's really one of the best free editors out there that looks and works exactly the same under Windows and Linux X.

    Short feature list
    1. Plugins
    2. Syntax highlighting, folding
    3. Open/Save via FTP
    4. Unlimited Undo/Redo
    5. Very customizable

    This is one sweet editor, and it's free.
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/xtpl/

    I own an UltraEdit license, but when I switched to Linux for development, I had to find something else.

    also, another of the best free editors out there has got to be EMACS. Maybe none has found the windows version of this storied program, but it works like magic for editing PHP once you download the php major mode off SourceForge, and works the same under win and *ix.
    The SourceForge mode is still in development but its got sweet highlighting and indentation facilities.
