    Here are a few bad things re:Notepad that pop into my mind:
    -It doesn't keep indents.
    -60/64k/whateverk file size limit.
    what do you mean about indents? i open multi-megabyte files all the time in Win2k's Notepad. 32K limit on 9x, i thought.

    no. everything else seems too bloated. the only thing i sometimes use is NoteTab Light when i want line numbers.

    Why write code when there is a program that will write it for you. I just found this one last week.

    I mean, if I do this:
    PHP Code:
    if (some_condition) {
        
    execute_this();
        
    and_execute_this();

    When I press enter after "execute_this();", my cursor stays indented 4 characters in most (coding) editors. In notepad, I have to re-indent myself. Which is fine.. unless you're 8 levels deep.

    oh yeah, i got ya. NoteTab can keep your indents like that, but it seems weird to me since i'm used to quickly tabbing over in Notepad. besides, when i want to unindent, then i have to backspace.

    textpad will let you hilight a block of text and press tab to indent the whole block.
    I can also hilight said block and CTRL-SHIFT-I to unindent it.

    I think Ultraedit automatically indents after typing {
    and unidents after you type } (unindents the } even).
    It's really nice. (-:

    oh my god that's exactly it!... Alt-F then S is so 20th century...

    for those of you without Win2k or WinXP and don't want to buy it for Notepad :
    use an editor like ultraedit or editplus... they're not bloated and have syntax coloring...

    Zend Studio is nice, actually its extremely nice for everything it can do. Almost like running Microsoft Visual C++ but for PHP.

    So far ultra edit seems to be rather bulky and it needs to have more coder-convienient features such as indenting and code reformatting.

    The other runner up which is homesite is great for barebones editing overall, but it wont have as much power as PHP IDE's can.

    PHPEd is quite nice actually, a bit confusing to use at first but it does have a few holes in the program (infact one of my scripts crashed it).

    Right now I use Editplus (since its very cheap to buy) but im very annoyed at editplus insisting on using PC format instead of UNIX.

    So all i can say thus far is...there hasnt been a program yet that has impressed me, feature wise.

    I might tryout Nuspheres IDE, but for its price, it doesnt seem to be worth it. However I see it coming in handy for a large project or speeding up debugging for contract jobs, so it would endup paying for itself rather quickly.

    I have always used Notepad, and the only gripes I have with it are

    1) No line numbers
    2) Its refusal to remember the file extension when opening (it always defaults to .txt which can get annoying).

    The other day though I picked up HydraPHP and have been using it. It's very cool -- gives you a browser mode to. It's like a stripped down DW. Haven't played around too much, but it seems cool.

    Before I use the EditPlus, I used the TextPad. BUT, I found that the TextPad have bug in their printing feature which result duplicate or miss printing the codes. After that I change to EditPlus and stick to it for now or for more than 2 years.

    I'm voting for www.editplus.com too...

    I've tried about all the editors and thisone is imho the best...but it all depends on personal feeling...I think everyone should try them all and then decide for himself...

    Yeh but everytime you have to keep changing the select menu thingy from .txt to ALL files if you are trying to OPEN a file (not save...) -- it can get a little frustrating to have to keep changing it to all files. Now I just leave the dir folder open and drag and drop the file into Notepad, it is so much easier!

    I like UltraEdit or Homesite.

    I'm checking out PHPedit, which seems fairly capable, decent debugger, code insight and has a pretty small footprint.

    Strange no one has mentioned the Maguma Studio for PHP.

    No problemo, I'll break the chain

    I just found it, and I'm currently testing it.
    At least te first impression is not so bad.

    Check it out!

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/php4ue/

    is a broken link

    I use dreamweaver MX but it uses a lot of resources so now I mostly use crimson editor (www.crimsoneditor.com) which does have colour coding for the most part, for PHP, Java, Perl, ASP et al.

    Though what I want to know is, where can I get a copy of UltraEdit?
