    Yeah, I'd like a PHP editor that does syntax highlighting. Possible additional functionality etc.

    So, anyone know of any?

    PHPeclipse or the open source Eclipse editor with the PHP plug-in. It has syntax highliting, it will define a function for you, if you have a library of functions, it will list them alphabetically for you among some other nifty things.

    If all you want is syntax highlighting, EditPlus is the best. It is not open source but it is good, light weight, all-purpose text editor.

    As for a PHP IDE, I personally use Zend Studio 3. It has syntax highlighting, code completion, debugger, profiler, analyzer, etc. Gives me more like a Visual Studio (6) feel, however, it isn't there yet. But give it some time, and it will be.

    Sorry, I might have worded the thread wrong.

    What I need is a decent free PHP editor, and HTML editor.

    Sorry for the mis-direction, peps :-)

    Dreamweaver MX 2004 is definitely worth the money. I recommend it over ALL other PHP editors including Zend Studio 3. The amount of features are amazing and it really speeds the development time. I have been using Zend for a while now and had tried every other PHP editor on the market. In my eyes DreamweaverMX 2004 is the best.

    The downpoint is that it does cost money. So if you don't have any that will be a problem.

    What about an editor that indents and formats automatically for you?

    For example, if you were to paste this code into the editor:

    PHP Code:
    <?php if ($a $b) { print "a is bigger than b"; } else {
    print 
    "a is less than or equal to b"; } ?>
    It would automatically format and indent to this:

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    if ($a $b) {
        print 
    "a is bigger than b";
    } else {
        print 
    "a is less than or equal to b";
    }
    ?>
    If anyone has done mirc scripting, the mirc scripting editor will do this, so whenever i wanted my code to be neater, i would paste it into the mirc script editor, and than copy it back into my usual editor (notepad).

    Just wondering if theres an editor that does this.

    Zend Studio is nice for this.
    PHPEdit does very well, too.
    And, even Homesite does it.

    You can give Weaverslave a try. Pretty powerful.
    A handfull of plug-ins are provided as well.
