I use PHPDesigner as it provides a wide support of languages and is light enough to run on both my heavy duty laptop and my netbook :)

Check this out in netbeans, paste in the follow code and put the cursor where red bracket is (caret should be right before it) and click

$this->setRequestParams(array('lug_count'=>'5', 'stud_spread'=>'114.3'));

Then press control-[

It will jump to this bracket

$this->setRequestParams(array('lug_count'=>'5', 'stud_spread'=>'114.3'));

If you hold down shift and press it again, for example it will select the text:

$this->setRequestParams(array('lug_count'=>'5', 'stud_spread'=>'114.3'));

You can then backspace it out, move it, etc.. This is a nice upgrade from my previous work flow which was to use the mouse (repetitive stress injury), or hold down shift + left arrow key and wait a while (waste of time).

It will also work to take you from "[" to "]" in this line of code:
Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]
  1. $foo['bar'] 

It will also jump on curly braces. I wonder if there's a way to automatically select, like if the code is "function foo", rather than double clicking foo to select it if it could just select it all at once?

I use an older version of "Taco HTML edit" for Mac. The old version was free and opened each document in a window. The new version opens them in tabs which *should* be better but I don't care for it.

It doesn't highlight javascript though so I really should shop around.

I personally use Notepad++. I used it when I first started PHP coding, and never turned back. I do not, however, use the default theme. The white editor is too hard on your eyes after a while, so I used a darker one.

I have contemplated switched to a more powerful one, such as netbeans, however I do not know if the improved speed is worth the uncomfortability with the program. Perhaps if I start larger projects.

I've used everything from nano/pico to Netbeans to gPHPEdit. I've liked Netbeans the most in recent months, but always find myself using nano/pico from time to time.

Hey all, I've been away from PHP programming for a couple of years, but now I'm back :)

I'm using notepad++, and I must say I'm quite impressed with how it evolved since the last time I used it (4/5 years ago). I'm pleased to see that it became a solid piece of software. It resembles Gedit in a rather good extent, which is my favourite editor.

Netbeans and pspad are missing in the list... RAGE!!!!

I've been using phpdesigner forever now and probably don't use 90% of the features

TextWrangler is great for MAC. Free, easy to use, built in ftp, good colour coding, not too disruptive indenting features, et.c.

Recently switched from gEdit to Komodo (by Active State) for some things. Mainly because I like code completion, but don't really like the weight of a full IDE, especially for simple stuff like markup.

I like SciTE. Just realized the other day how to make the tabs use. It is noted for almost any language you want to write, and more. The only thing I wish there was a file viewer. : (

What is a macro and what? I heard a lot about them.

Also use Dreamweaver for my big things, but I'm moving to Linux soon, so I'll try to come, and if it works well with my applications, I'll just find something else. Maybe Eclipse? :x

I'm am now a vim user. Still learning it, but it's making sense so far. Emacs got the ol' "college try", but the PHP support is terrible.
