Well... actually the latest version of Dreamwaver is 8, not MX. Here's more info:
http://www.macromedi...re/dreamweaver/
The greatest difficulty in programming is not in finding answers, but in asking yourself the right questions. -- If nobody has said it before, then I'd like to take credit of thinking this up (during summer of 2010).
"Complex problems often have the simplest solutions" -- Not sure who said that first.
=== My projects (all feedback welcomed) ===
XML_XSLT2Processor(0.5.3) - perform XSLT 2.0 transformations in PHP.
PEAR2_Net_Transmitter(1.0.0a4) - reliable sockets.
PEAR2_Cache_SHM(0.1.2) - persistent data storage wrapper.
=== Useful tools ===
NetBeans - full featured PHP IDE, as well as a decent code editor for other things.
Fiddler2 - The best free HTTP debugger. Performance tuning, security check, integrity check, custom requests and more, all made easy.
Gobby - That's NOT my Nickname! Look at the topic.

May I please ask the moderator who made the Poll to get rid of the MX after Dreamwaver? As said above, the latest version is 8. If there are people who use older versions, then just saying "Dreamwaver" might be the best thing to do.

Please don't rot your mind with an editor!!!! :)

You learn so much more by using notepad and hand coding. You develope much stronger coding skills. Even with .Net I use Notepad at home...I only us VS.net at work because I have to.

Just my opinion though.

Posted 02 January 2006 - 10:59 PM

wow.. we missed about 50,000 on here....
I <3 open source

Here's a few of my favorites:

PSPad
Free (freeware)
Platform: Windows 98,ME,2000,XP
http://www.pspad.com

Nano
Free (open source)
Platform: linux, with many ports
http://www.nano-editor.org/

NEdit (Nirvana Text Editor)
Free (open source)
Platform: linux, with many ports
http://www.nedit.org/

Bluefish Web Development Studio
Free (open source)
Platform: Linux, FreeBSD, MacOS-X, OpenBSD, Solaris and Tru64 (no windows!)
http://bluefish.open...e.nl/index.html

If I'm on a windows machine, I'll grab a copy of PSPad and go to town. It's really great and free so give it a shot. If I'm on a linux machine (and usually I am), Bluefish is good for sitting down for awhile, but for a quick fix I'll probably use NEdit because it loads faster. If i'm stuck in command line linux I use Nano.

Other's I've used:

Beaver (Early AdVanced EditoR)
free (open source)
platforms: Linux/unix/windows
http://www.nongnu.org/beaver/

well, not gonna list any more. I just found this:
http://en.wikipedia....of_text_editors
I'm writing a book. Aren't I cool?

Post screenshots (please, no 1200016 x 15000008 screens...) of the programme(s) you use, think it's cool to see the GUI of it (them). I'm looking for one like Kate for windows...

Btw, I had an idea, why don't we post the set of programmes we use to build, develop, whatever? Like:

editing, coding, etc:
ftp client:
image treatment:
etc:

I started trying the Crismon Editor and I liked it very much. It still lacks some features, but it's cool anyway. The FTP feature is really a time saver.

Thanks Eric!

I used the old fashion Notepad :) when did everyone start moving up?

A typical task for a PHP programmer would be writing PHP code.

When?

well for me, I switched from Notepad to an editor with syntax colorization in 2003. I got tired of looking at all black text on a white background :)
