if you manage to install the DBG degugger with phpedit (much easier if u get the latest beta) It has got the be one of the best tools i've ever seen. I only wish it did save to/load from FTP.

And what exactly would be the advantages of notepad over PhpEdit or other editers?

I honestly don't see why anyone would use notepad if there are so much free editors with colour-coding, build in debuggers, autocomplete functions etc etc.
Notepad doesn't even have a linecount so it's terrible for debugging purposes.

Why not use copycon and move to before the windows-area ?

It does have line count..

ctrl + g, type in 99999999, click ok, it will say invalid then give you the last line number :-)

Debugging, who needs it?
Auto complete is more annoying than useful.
Coloring, ok well that I want in notepad and am working on it, Rogue is doing all / most of the work for coloring heh...

I like http://www.editplus.com

& mostly like maguma studio http://www.maguma.com/download.php , mainly for its class browser and auto-docs (has a buggy debugger & the odd quirk but still more useful than Zend Studio)

Arrghh, I'm sensing a bit of mattover-matter in you!
What kind of an attitude is that?

Everyone needs to debug!
Auto complete is extremely useful, I find the best setup for it is ctrl+space for listing all completions and shift+ctrl+space for completion of arguments in a function call when you forget the parameters.

Do you mean to say you are adding syntax coloring to notepad? Well, call me crazy but I think it is a Edit class with ES_MULTILINE not a Richedit control, therefore making it pretty damn hard if not completely impossible.. As far as I know you can't easily subclass an edit control and add syntax coloring.... I mean I can make a whole editor in less code I'm sure!

The editor is coded, havent worked on it in a while, a few bugs / kinks to work out, and the syntax coloring well, that will be tricky.

I love PHPEdit, too.
It's a great Editor.

It's a pitty that there is no PHPEdit Version for Linux.
In Linux I use Zend Studio (www.zend.com) or Eclipse with the phpeclipse Plugin (www.eclipse.org and http://sourceforge.net)

Saludo

Go ahead. Maybe within 10 years or so, you'll have something half as usefull as PhpEdit and then you can start on writing your own wordprocessor :rolleyes:

But i still did'nt see you give any resons why you prefere Notepad over more elaborated editors like PhpEdit? Faster loading ?(--> didn't notice any real differences) Less resource eating ? (idem) ...
Any particular reason why you'd rather write one yourself?

PHPEdit seems to be definitly the best one from what I have tried... Well Acecool... thanx but I obviously have notepad (or similar like simpletext if I had a mac) and if I ask for a good editing tool maybe could you guess that I'm not asking for notepad? ;)

Cheers

As an editor, it's pretty good and has some nice features, like restoring the last project files that you worked on, color syntax, etc. The search and replace is wacked out though. But hell, it's free.

thanx Nomadicus. I'll try this one too. Even if I think that PHP Edit will give me what I'm looking for. :)

I think Crimson Editor is the best.. Just do a websearch for "Crimson Editor".. It supports more languages than just PHP.. You just select which language your coding in..
