    using MD files for readme files

    Hi,

    well i guess better late than never lol I suppose maybe i better start using MD files for my readme stuff. I have always just used plain text for my readme files and i always just tell people to open them in notepad++ or on the server html editor or programmers notepad...

    Never thought it was such a big deal until a lady customer yelled at me today because she could not read my file in normal notepad... ooops

    So its been on the list for many years but i guess maybe i should start getting with the flow lol

    So whats the proper way to make an MD file, just save it as MD?

    Thanks
    If a php file only has php code within it you do not need to use the closing php tag
    A good way to remember objects from arrays is you shoot objects with arrows Example: $name->id; then Arrays are $name['id'];

    It is but its all pushed together and hard to read, i guess MD files solve that problem by giving enough formating so that when you open it with just notepad it does make it easier to read. Thats why i posted this in HTML section because by the description they are used only with HTML.
