    Ok, I have been hardcore about programming by using pico (I know that I need to learn vi). Now, I am wanting to try out a graphical programming editor since I plan on spending a lot of time using PHP/mySQL.

    So, does anyone have any recommendations for a graphical programming editor that supports PHP/mySQL and runs under Linux (I refuse to run Windows)?

    Thanks.

    For X-windows, The KDE Advanced Editor isn't bad. It doesn't specifically support PHP, but if you set the syntax highlighting for 'Perl' it's pretty close.

    On the other hand, I find that 99% of the time I get by great with Midnight Commander. With this I get a great combination of file browser, FTP client, and text editor. Even though it's a command line application, the later versions even support syntax highlighting (somewhat), and it's got search/replace and other standard text editor functions. (type 'mc' from command line).

    There is an interesting project at SourceForge, to create a complete RAD tool for PHP/MySQL called KPHPDevelop (also requires KDE)


    Don't be a masochist and learn vi. Your time is much better spent actually having a life.

    Hey, JasterMereel! Nice to see another LNOer here.

    I looked around and the best GUI editor that I could find that has decent support for PHP is Code Commander. Also the BlueFish HTML editor has PHP highlighting. You can customize Code Commander more though. Check them out.

    Learning vi is like banging your hand with a hammer so you can understand the pain just a little more.

    I've been using Nedit. I think the stable version is pretty recent, but it is very nice. Highlighting and formatting modules for every language you might use.

    I like Nedit too, it handles all of the languages that I use. I think the url is nedit.org, however if I'm wrong you can obtain it from freshmeat.net
