[nycphp-talk] Zend offer

I use HomeSite / CF Studio (basically the same thing) for just about
everything. 

I've tried Zend Studio recently, and although it has a great be it
goodies or php, I'm still getting used to the interface.  There's
something about the display, and I get strange scan lines with it as if
it's too much for my system to handle or something.

Also, since I've been working with more and more designers lately, I've
begun trying DWMX out.  They've added quite a bit, and I was fairly
impressed.  The fact that it requires you to have a site set up blows.
It would have been easier if it brought over all my Macromedia FTP and
(that other one.. Pre-coffee email) and made sites out of those.  But it
does have built in CVS and some pretty decent other goodies...  All in
all it's really a more resource intensive HomeSite.  Which is why I go
back to HS.

I've also tried out NuSphere's PHPEd, which seems very similar, IMO to
Zend Studio.  The default settings made my scripts look like crap
because I use actual tabs.  I know it's a no - no, but I like the
quickness of it.  It's supposed to have some kind of port to their soap
class, which I thought was interesting, but I haven't had a chance to
dive in that far yet.

I need coffee :)

I use Homesite as my all-purpose editor.
