    Any, that is simple.

    I would suggest getting a very basic editor and concentrating on learning the language, a huge IDE or editor could become confusing and distract you from learning the language or baffle you with settings or config etc.

    I spent a while using textpad, before I got a grip on the language, then went looking for a better tool to use to write it.

    ok. I have read all your comments but I need a bit more information customized to my needs. I am really new to PHP so basically I am looking for an editor that can quickly help me grasp the code. From what I read, it seems that EditPlus is more for an advanced PHP user. Is this correct? Is there not auto fill? Is there any php editor that can allow you go to the code say highlight a variable or function call and hit a shortcut key so it takes you to wherever the item is defined at? What is the best PHP editor for beginners? I am afraid that I may use a too advanced editors that does multiple languages and maybe run in to the problem that it messes up the code the way Macromedia Dreamweaver sometimes does; so even though I have Macromedia and VS.Net available for my use, I was thinking that maybe a dedicated editor would be better for me to use. Am I incorrect in my assumptions?

    Now i'm using EditPlus and i think it's great because it's really extensible. Now i got a new pc i'll try again jEdit because i liked it when i first used it.

    in Linux i use KEdit

    thanx for the jEdit remider Jerry!

    I didn't like 0.6 Stable, especially, because I was missing using Shift + DEL, CTRL + Insert and Shift + Insert for Cut, Copy and Paste but 0.8 Devel rocks and has everything I need

    Love it

    After playing with jEdit and using more of the plugins and customising it, I'm going to be using it for a very long time I think.

    I've got an idea for a plugin that I think I will write as well

    I have also tried MANY editors. I use UltraEdit, EditPlus and Dreamweaver. Noteworthy is phpEd which helps me understand the flow of php with it's powerful debugger.
