    @Traq - yeah that is what I'm referring to. It's not a huge deal at all but I switch between notepad++ and gedit so it just kind of throws me off a little.

    Is this just a setting or possibly an issue w/ my instal? my notepad++ runs on vm w/ w7. I've google searched it but didn't find much..

    phpdesigner - though really all I use it for is code colour and brace matching
    (do all my debugging via local apache )
    whenever I try something else I find a reason to go back to what I know

    One the posts mention Geany, I used it for about an hour this morning and I have to say its cool. I love the terminal feature coz it's a pain switching back and fore to the terminal. A nice editor

    @jeepin I think you might have something wrong with your install, or some version with an odd bug -- I don't have that problem with notepad++ at all (I run 5.8.6 on XP). In fact, notepad++ and gedit behave exactly the same for me, in that regard...?

    My Notepad++ doesn't exhibit this problem either. However, there are plenty of variables ... EOL conversion, Language choice, Wordwrap, etc ... that might produce some effect like he describes? Perhaps...

    I've d'loaded Komodo Edit but haven't found time to use it for anything useful at all. Way too stuck in Notepad++ (when on Win) these days....

    Since making my post I have been using Geany, I love it. The terminal integrated is great for linux based systems. Means I dont have to leave the software, I can just sit here create virtual hosts, configure the server etc etc etc all on the command line.

    I'm not at a point where I can switch and really "give it a try" (mid-project), but I'm going to. Pointed it at my PHP and it showed syntax errors, function definitions, and more inline. Neat

    If you use PHPDocumentor-style comments for your functions and methods, it will display useful info from them, too (e.g. @param entries will give you the type and any description for each parameter). I'm not saying other editors don't do that, as much as I'm saying it gives me more reason to use that commenting style.

    I do; but more for my own benefit (I don't generate documentation from it). I don't always exactly follow the phpdoc rules.

    I thought you meant it did some kind of function signature / type sniffing and made auto-complete suggestions...
    ah well. Yeah, this is cool too.

    [edit]

    oh, crap; I completely misunderstood what you meant twice. Yeah, that is cool!

    Incidentally, phpdoc comments are compiled into the bytecode, and are available through Reflection. Only as a plain string, but I can see potential for implementing Java/C#-like attributes.

    I use Notepad++. It is a good editor capable of highlighting syntax, it is a built-in editor with Windows7, and more importantly it loads fast. I had Dreamweavor before, but couldnt stand the fact that it took a minute to open a php file...

    Of course more advanced softwares like dreamweavor have more functionalities, so those who live with these functionalities will have different preferences.
