  • What are you guys using to edit the PHP?

    I've tried Wordpad, Notepad, even MSWorks.

    Every program warps the codes and it gets messed up before I even start editing.

    What are you guys using.

    Notepad works fine for me

      Notepad works at first, but then when I save it, it all wraps into one big txt bulg. Plus, the search field was too small.

      Anyway, I download textpad and it's wonderful.

          TextPad is another great text editor and includes a PHP plug in to make everything look all nice and pretty.

            I like UltraEdit. Plus, it's great to do newsletters in, because it has a handy "Word Wrap After X Characters", then "Convert Word Wrap To LF" functions, makes it easy!

              I hate using notepad.... I have TextPad set up on my system as the default text editor and of course use it for PHP coding as well.. it's nice since it has color syntax hilighting as well. UltraEdit is nice too.

                Am I the only one who uses emacs?? It seems that most of you code in windows, which is very surprising to me.

                    Well ok... I do *some* stuff in vi... but most of the time I find it much easier to develop and test on windows.

                            No, really.

                              Has anyone created definitions for PHP word highlighting (for the mentioned editors that support custom definitions) that you would care to share?
