View Full Version : using DW as text editor ?

09-21-2005, 09:56 PM
i have decided to embark on php learning as i realised a lot of employers seem to be asking for it, in addition to the other things.

so, i have been inching my way through "PHP and MySQL Web Development" (Sams) and so far so slowly good. php/mySQl and Apache all loaded and ready for action.

im still on the first chapter though. anyway, i was reading about text editors and which ones to use. is it okay to use DW ? i already have it and wondered what other people thought of using it to code, and how it faired against all the others out there.

yes dreamweaver mx and mx 2004 are perfect for php 4

dreamweaver 8 can handle php 5 too

yes, the only problem you will face is that you will not get code hints for new functions in php5, otherwise it will function fine
