What you need is an editor with debugging capabilities. I have been using
PHPEdit from www.phpedit.net for several years with great success. It is
free for personal use. Check it out.

Yes! use a php debugger or IDE (Integrated Debugging Env.). See
these two archive threads for some free/paid IDE discussions:

Wrong! IDE stands for Integrated Development Environment.

I'd kind of like to know the same thing, except for Linux, without an
editor. (I use vim these days, but have been an emacs user)

For now, error_log() seems like the best bet. :-/ I've started to use
PHPUnit as a "debugging environment" in some cases, it works well for
that, but it's really not designed with that in mind.

Average_Joe, to me using IDE easily translates into 10 times
productivity improvement. Some of the PHP IDEís also are available
for Linux.

Probably <http://www.xdebug.org/> ? (Komodo uses this)

You download the trial version then apply for a personal use licence. When
you install the licence the 30 day limit is turned off.
