    programs for running PHP

    guys...

    right now, I'm using notepad to write my PHP functions, and saving it into a .php file.

    Are there any PHP compilers that let me do the same thing. but highlight certain codes in diff. colors, and highlight the lines where I have parse errors? Hunting for parse errors in notepad is SUCH a pain!!

    Thanks a bill! You guys rule!

    AceHTML has some nice syntax coloring for PHP. TextPad has addons for PHP syntax coloring too. FirstPage 2000 does color coding for PHP, but not as well as AceHTML (IMO).

    EditPlus does a nice job too, especially with the "PHP5" syntax highlighter from their page with user files. The PHP5 one just adds the session functions to be highlighted, as they are not when using the default PHP file.

    ok.. thanks for the hints!

    you guys mean to say.. i can't compile a php file using that editor.. but as long as it highlights certain areas in diff. colors.. it makes it easier to code and see?

    and if i get parse errors when test-viewing the "page.php", and the error mentions the line, how do I get to the line?

    Open up the program where I typed the code in, and manually go to the line in question... fix the problem.... copy and paste the php text into relevant sections of my webpage, and test run it again?

    Most editors will have line numbers for each line (in a margin)
