    I just tried textpad...there is no php specific stuff, ...
    just a fyi, most text editors don't allow for php syntax highlighting by default but rather most require some work finding and installing proper definition files as thankfully some people put together these for us to play with. for textpad, such a file can be found here :

    Hi,

    I went there and downloaded that, but then couldn't figure out what to do with it. Besides, text pad doesn't have any buttons for entering php form elements, etc. Why would someone want to go to all the trouble of setting up all that php stuff when edit plus already has all those buttons set up for you?

    I use editplus2 for years, it is developed by a man in Korea.
    I think it is the first choice of script-developer.(Perl/PHP even Html)

    I would have to say TextPad. It's simple to use has all the functions I need and with function colouring makes it very easy to spot those stupid mistakes with your code.

    if you can find v0.96.3 it's the best release in my opinion.

    I've always been fond of UltraEdit . It does PHP by default, plus it's easy to change the highlights to your own favorite colors and add keywords, etc. It also does quite a few other handy features like replace all in files, sorting, macros, and my personal favorite - columns mode.

    Thumbs up HOMESITE!!!


    I have been coding for almost 5 years and the best editor that I have ever found is Homesite. It allows you to have the simplicity of any other text editor, and the convienance of excellent color coding and ftp features. all I have to do is edit my page and click ctrl-s to automatically save to my remote server, just as if I saved locally. I'd stick behing Homesite just as much as I'll always stick behind PHP!

    I've been using a very good editor, DzSoft PHP Editor. It has good syntax highlighting and nice, but simple features. If you have the PHP Manual CHM, you can link it to the editor and use it with shortcut keys. Other than that, I've been using Notepad and 1st Page.

    this thread is still going? It must just about be listed on spamcop for the number of e-mails it sends when a reply is posted.

    Textpad 4.4

    nice syntax highlighting, supports all kinds of scripting

    you have to LEARN to code, but if you're going to learn a program, would you rather learn some program that writes your code or learn the actual code so you can duplicate it at will???
