    Can you tell me what editors you all use?
    I'm looking to get something to run on linux (X-windows) that is a bit like UltraEdit for MSWindows, or maybe a full blown IDE, something like PHP-Coder again for MSWin. Basically something with decent syntax highlighting.

    Thanks,

    Nick.

    What, you don't like Emacs?

    You can try Nedit, its my preference for linux. Lots of add-ons for any language you might use today including PHP. Don't have a link but it lives somewhere at sourceforge.
