PHP Coder

In Brief

First Impressions

August 26, 2003

For free software this IDE actually packs quite a punch. Unfortunately, you do end up getting what you paid for. I’ve only just started using this program so I clearly need to explore a bit further, but one of the annoying things about this editor is that when you hit the down key to go down to the next line, the cursor remains in the same column. So instead of it being at the end of the line below, it is floating out in the middle of white space. This is really awful in my opinion, and there doesn’t seem to be any way to turn it off. I also noticed some weird behavior when I was typing the opening php tag. I’m not sure if it was some attempt to do a highlight or what.
