    what do you code php in?


    Hey all, I was just wondering what everyone codes their PHP in, and if there was a decent freeware or cheap program or IDE out there that was really good for PHP.

    I started just using plain old notepad, but switched to Macromedia's Dreamweaver because it puts line numbers in for you and color codes your code.

    What do you use?

    Hi,

    Well I started out using Notepad but now I couldn't live without my copy of ConTEXT, top program not just for PHP but for Perl, C++, Java, HTML, Javascript, VB ....

    You can find it free at

    try HTML-Kit; it's free, extensible and a good alternative to commercial Homesite (www.allaire.com).

    There is several threads covering this question.

    Keep it simple is my advice.

    Use a simple text editor.
    Consulent php.net for documentation.
    Ask here on devshed if you get stuck.

    Only a wuzz needs an IDE.

    I use vim and gvim. All vi clones. I use vim on my Linux boxes, but at work on MS I use gvim. Can't beat the flexibilty and quickness of vim. Plus the syntax coloring is pretty cool too.

    Later,

    The Lucky Few of Us Can Use BBEdit for the Macintosh.

    It is by far the best thing since the keyboard. It highlights your code and saves to FTP.

    If you are lucky enough to use a mac, definatly give it a try.

    There are dozens of editors that do the same things for Windows and probably Linux.

    Whether mac users like it or not -- the PC software and hardware bases are much larger and far better than the mac hardware and software bases...

    I use UltraEdit for Java, PHP, HTML, JScript, and so on. I use Visual C++ for C++, although I have the Borland compiler and gcc/g++ laying around on my comp for code that is specific to them

    Damn I use Microsoft Wordpad

    I just started to use PHP CODER PRO
    {which I think I have to have mysql and php4 setup on my machine}
    Argh

    Although I am still learning PHP

    I would start with wordpad then try these other tools. I didn't plan on learning C or anything but I think I will have to know some of the codes.

    Good, then maybe you can help me. I have BBedit at work and do all my coding in it. But at home I use PC and am still trying to find editor that uses SSH2 protocol for server upload.
    This is one feature I saw only on BBedit and in none of the PC editors.

    So, if anybody knows of such editor for PC it would be greatly appreciated.
