    What software do you use to edit/make your php scripts?

    I am just courious to know what software program everyone uses to create or edit all of their php scripts. I'd be interested to know how many people just use notepad or have found a better program.

    Nice.

    I just use the conventional NotePad, althought I don't recommend it. What I do more often than not these days is, write my code in NotePad, and then open it in DzSoft PHP Editor for debugging purposes. It isn't great, but it gives you line numbers, and some sort of syntax highlighting, all-be-it not very good highlighting. (I mean, brown, teal and grey..)

    I think you're talking about Professional Notepad which allows you to add syntax highlighting to it. It looks pretty good actually.

    I've been using Textpad for years (www.textpad.com), you can download php syntax highlighting files as well, which can be edited to add newer functions, etc. I have tried the PHP Designer, which is packed full of features for a free product, but has anyone else had any issues with it eating up the CPU? It runs better on my new laptop, but it would bring my older XP laptop to a screaching halt. I do like the way it puts all your classes and functions into a library on the sidebar ;-)
