I'm not suprised that no one has mentioned PSPad; if it were more well known, I'm sure that more people would be recommending it. In my opinion, it's the best free editor out there, and the author is constantly adding features.

http://www.pspad.com/

I have written a blog post on my site that explains some reasons why I think it's the best.

http://www.soulpass.com/archives/2005/0 ... xt-editor/

Let me encourage you all to try it, and compare it with the editor that you use now. Take all things into consideration, including details such as the size of the program/load time and maybe even price.

I have tried many of the editors that have been mentioned in this thread, and have passed them off to the side. PSPad is one that I've stuck with because I have not found one better. Let me know if you find one that you feel is better!

I'll admit, it does look fairly feature-rich. I may give it a try.

its ok... however still gonna stick with Zend Studio :)

however for those that cant afford to buy it -- PSPad seems like quite a good alternative..

Add a better IntelliSence to it and good debugger : it will be even better :D

I'm using version 4.0.1
strong point of Zend Studio :
- show database.
- connect FTP.
- quick debug (bug internal and bug server).
- ...
best regards :)

4.0.2 had some bug fixes and performance upgrades :) i suggest you download it :)
i never liked database connections in Zend... ever since Zend Studio 4 Beta i was a bit sceptic about it...

But i would say like this:

Inetrnal and External debuging
FTP access
GREAT Intellisence and autocomplete
Good Project manager
Profiling feature
Output window posts a HTML source which i like much more :)
SQL editor
CSS, XML, HTML editors build-in

And no: maguma and PHPEdit are worthles after yo have tried studio ^^

First of all: php4.3.11 is old and you cant make good OO apps with it as it still has pretty dull support for OOP
However i would recommend Zend Studio Server and Client for development machines, then use php5.0.4 or, even better get used to php 5.1 PDO as its very usefull and i really like it.

and PHP Expert Editor looks like a peace of crap... I tested it and it really was crap... sorry... just an opinion of a person that really knows how to choose an IDE ;)

well: notepad is usefull when developing small applications or scripts, but when going huge: you often need an IDE to make a life a bit easier. It helps you to speed up your development, plus some good IDE like Zend Studio checks your code for errors on the fly :)

supporting many languages has never been a positive side for professionals as they know that its best that the software developers should concentrate on making it great, not only good, for one language...

when they have to make it work with several languages: the quality drops... especially with free editions..

The ONLY IDE that i know, note: IDE, not editor like most of you say, that is good with several languages is Microsoft Visual Studio.NET 2003 and 2005 (BETA 2 is awsome)

Interesting to see at yours work... made by Notepad.exe. How fast you are create CMS application... I'm think near 10 years.

P.S. Your picture with 2 shrews is too old

mena dostali dejstvitelno tvoi viskazivanija ne po teme tolko iz-za togo chto ti ne ponimaesh napisannogo... ja znaju chto vse moi frazi korrektni: izveni, no anglijskij ja s 4 godikov uchu -- 14 let toest, s britanskim prepodavatelem bil... pro svoi diplomi v jazike ja govorit ne budu..

Vse viskazivanie shlo chto esli chelovek ispolzuet Zend na vseh OS, a na winde drugoj: eto stranno... tak ze ja viskazival mnenie o Zend Studio i nikogo ne polival dermom..

Nauchis VNIMATELNO chitat napisannoe... mena dejstvitelno dostali tvoi eti viskazivanie pro naezdi: ne znaesh jazika dostatochno shtob ponat vse 100% -- luchse ne lez.. prosto sovet na budujushee.. Izvenenij ot teba navernaka ne dazdeshsa... tak chto prosto eto proedem..

No vsetaki -- po-akuratnej, ladno?
