  • Zend Editor/Zend Studio is a good choice, since it comes will function tooltip and autocompletion. However, I'm using PSPad, since it's free, unlike Zend. Eclipse is also a good choice.

    If you want to learn PHP, start with the http://www.php.net tutorials. If you know people that are coding PHP you can ask them too. Beware however, 'cause a lot of people knows PHP, but more than half of them don't have the good practices and are coding garbage.

    PHP.net is the ultimate resource for learning PHP. I've been coding PHP for years, and I still use it everyday. Not only it's fully documented, but there are also code examples from expert programmers for each function or keyword you can find.

    You can use php version of eclipse, it's totally free to use. I know Zend is very good as well, but it needs your purchase.

    I started to learn PHP 2 months ago as a module for my HND course. I found the language fairly easy because I knew C/C++ and Java. The PHP syntax is similar to C. Also you should be familiar with HTML/XHTML as these tags are embeded within PHP code.

    What you need?
    [b]An editor to write PHP code.[/b] There are a lot of free editors out their, but I use jEdit. It's a free editor that can be used to write code for various languages. It provides colour coding for HTML/XHTML, Java, Javascript, PHP, Smarty etc. I prefer using this editor because the onus is on you to write correct code and not rely on auto correction built in.

    [b]The PHP Engine to translate code to HTML/XHTML.[/b] This engine will be on a Web Server that has PHP installed. You can get connected to a web hosting company that provides this support or install locally on your current system.

    [b]Get a good book on PHP.[/b] I bought PHP and MySQL Web Development by Luke Welling and Laura Thompson. This is recognized as the best book on PHP. The PHP crash course in chapter 1 will get you up to speed quickly.

    Hope this helps
  • ZEND is defiantly the best IDE to use. I have been teaching myself PHP for a little while now and would be completely lost without it.

    You can download a trial version of it from there website. If you are looking to buy it though its a little costly.

    There is also a PHP extension available for eclipse which might be worth taking a look at.

    In my opinion ActiveState Komodo is the best PHP editor hands down, good code hinting and stuff for those of us that have short term memory like swiss cheese, and it is very versitile. excelent for the scripting the back ends for your web sites, even does actionscripting.

    The best way to learn php is to do it. Use the downloadable PHP manual in chm or html format and it will keep you pretty well straight, Lots of good advice and at the end of any function / method ref description you will see alternative examples from other programmers.
