    How Zend Studio help in PHP programming?

    Hi,

    I always program PHP scripts line by line in a text editor.

    I noticed that there is a PHP Editor (Zend Studio) mentioned in this forum. How it works? How can it help to shorten programming time?

    It has many useful features. My favorite is "code analyzer", which dissects your code looking for problems. It also has a matching brackets highlighter, which I've found really handy on numerous occasions (though avoiding spaghetti code really helps in this regard too ), auto-code formatting (you can take a 1000 line script that utterly lacks formatting and press ctrl-f and it beautifully formats the whole thing), code completion (not that useful in my opinion, but sometimes nice when using an obscure function), and because it has php built in, you can test your scripts on your machine without having to upload to a server.

    That's just the tip of the iceburg. You should browse this page for more details.
