ssh or ftp for writing scripts?

P: n/a
I wonder do most php coders use ftp or ssh (terminal login) to write
php scripts? I use ssh because my host offers it, but I notice most
hosts that charge less than $10/month don't offer ssh. Are there are
any tools one can use to write long scripts (>5000 lines of code)?

My guess is that most writer use an editor to write and test on their
test machine and then deploy it using a (hopefully secure (as in
encrypted as well as properly synchronizing local and remote files))
method (like cvs over ssh).

You might wonder if you are doing something wrong writing 5000+ lines of
script...

I mostly use a text-editor. UltraEdit when I'm on Windows, vim on *NIXes.

I never noticed any problems with the previously mentioned editors and
I've been hacking in some huge files with 'em. I must admit that I've
never written over 5k of code in a single file.
