Topic: What editor do you use for php?
I have been customizing my copy of punbb a bit and I keep wondering how Rickard and other php programmers deal with their sourcecode?
I have been using emacs for over 10 years now, because it knows syntax and indentation rules for most programming languages. But with php it gets quite confused because of the mixing of HTML and PHP's C-like syntax, even within single lines. Moreover, it appears to me that programmers nowadays like to use extremely long lines of code. Either I have to use an editor which cuts off the right part of the line (which means I have to do horizontal scrolling all the time while looking at the code) or let the editor wrap around long lines, which means the indentation gets messed up. Am I old-fashioned with my preference for lines that are max 80 or maybe 120 characters long?
So what is the recommended software for editing punbb code?
P.S. I am a long-term Linux user in case you didn't guess that from my emacs usage.
