    Vi all the way baby. Used to use jEdit, but I got sick of using WinCVS and tortoiseCVS, so moved to CLI for CVS and editing.

    Some of the responses have been interesting, for one, I didnt add notepad to the poll list, as I didnt think that there would be many people writing php using this....soz.

    I'm also surprised to see people using Dreamweaver without any PHP addons like Interakt's [which same to be very good] as I have found that Dreamweavers php coding features to be a bit lacking [great for X/html, Css, Javascript alike], but then its horses for courses. I quess its all down to what you "feel" comfortable with, or know how to use.

    UltraEdit on Win, Jedit on Mac.

    Anything that allows me to open a file from any server (FTP or SFTP) and then quick save.

    I couldn't find a good GPL for Windows, so I bought UltraEdit. I would buy bbedit on Mac if not for the fact it costs - jedit is GPL.

    I prefer to use my brain and the drawing board.. Afterwards i'll use a human typing machine and/or a human htmlturbator... (When i'm used as such a machine i prefer (g)vim and/or trustudio (eclipse plugin))

    I used Dreamweaver for years, I've since tried PHP Designer 2005, which I liked, but I now use TextMate on the Mac (a wholly remarkable piece of software).

    Code-Genie. very slim and fast, but i still find very useful features all the time. can't use anything else, as im so attached to this program.

    too bad its no longer even supported anymore, looks like they sold their domain name lol...i guess it was too easy to crack without buying. shame, its a great program. i can send it to someone if they want.

    This hit the nail on the head for me. I think DW is teriffic for many things, and it has some outrageously powerful features, but for php coding, diplomatically, it leaves a huge amount to be desired.

    Thats why one off the surprises I've got from this poll, is that most people are coding PHP with Dreamweaver and without any PHP extensions......

    What I find shocking is how many people (for whatever reason) decide to code without a full php IDE.

    I suppose it depends on how much coding you have to do, charging by the hour I try to be as productive as possible for my clients.

    Quite happy to plead ignorance! I've never seen anyone use a php IDE firsthand so I've had no incentive to invest in one.

    I suppose if anything could improve my experience, it's debugging tools.

    Sim3 might want to check out the Zend IDE then. It's got a great debugger built into it and it's an overall an amazing utility. There's a 21 day trial copy you can pick up on their website.

    Nice troll ken.

    IDE's don't 'make' you code, they improve efficiency.

    I use notepad. I don't use it because I like it, I use it because it comes with the operating system and I'm too lazy to install anything else :P
