    Linux/BSD/Unix == nano/vi/elvis
    Win32 == Notepad/Wordpad


    I find the GUI editors to create bloated code.

    Crimson Editor. A great little program that's been my editing favourite for years. Just like a plain text editor (e.g. Notepad) but with line numbers (a must for editing in my opinion) AND syntax highlighting for all sorts of languages (including, of course, PHP). Has tabbed files, global replace and all sorts of other funky things. Best of all, it's free!

    This has been asked at least a million times, but anyway. :p


    Dreamweaver CS3. Just because of the color highlighting. I don't care about most other features.

    I use a combination of Dreamweaver and zend studio, i mainly use dreamweaver when i am doing templates for the php apps (as well as do php / javascript coding in it) but when i am doing heavy duty php code, i use zend studio. (and before anyone says anything, i do it ALL by hand, dreamweavers layout display helps alot and saves a lot of time as well).

    Same here. Now moving to Eclipse with the Zend Studio plugin. The best thing of Eclipse is you can edit PHP, Flex, HTML, Java, Javascript (try JSEclips from Adobe (free)), etc. from one application.

    Any serious programmer using notepad or something similar to edit PHP is just plain stupid. Zend Studio will cut developing time in half or more because of the syntax checking, real time error detection, code assist, etc.
