Favorite Coding Tools?

P: n/a
Just wondering what the gurus like to use for the favorite tools
(syntax checkers, etc.). I recently downloaded Rapid PHP and it's
obviously better than notepad or vi but I was curious as to what else
was out there.

I personally most like to use Notepad++ as it has many features which
are essential to me including syntax-highlighting and pseudo-automatic
indent. Though, it might be quite difficult to compile it to work under
Linux.

Anyway, I'm still looking for the real perfect editor as I'm not that
satisfied with any of them, yet. Neighter Eclipse nor Notepad++ or any
other tools are both easy to use and feature-filled enough to me.

When I'm working on my desktop: Nedit, svn and aterm.

I'm running Linux and Quanta Plus is fantastic for PHP editing/site
management (combines lots of tools)

The other one is a code comparison tool for Gnome called Meld, very
well done visual interface to compare files as well as similar
directory trees.

Other then that Google is probably the best PHP programmer reference
tool out there.

I use php.chm on my desktop; has everything the zend manual has, plus
much quicker to get to and use. See http://www.php.net/download-docs.php

As Editor, it's TextPad; something about 'cold, dead, fingers ... '
applies here.

Well, there is more than just an editor:

Editor: PSPad, with subversion and database scripts
Database frontend: SQLyog
Repository: Subversion
Log viewer: BareTail (just great to have the MySQL querylog open and
scrolling over the screen)
Logging proxy (if needed): Achilles
Unit test library: TinyUnit (my own)
Functional testing: Selenium
