Thanks for the link.

My needs from the IDE are:

1) light-weight

2) minimum footprint (in terms of project metadata, xml files that the IDE leaves)

3) pretty printing

4) Class view (can show methods, variables in a class)

5) object graph navigation (can show runtime call stack, object composition etc.)

I have some Eclipse fears, so that is a territory I will not tread. I think I'll want something in between Komodo and PHPEdit.

Thanks again.

6) has a zero price tag.

Vi! or `ed` if vi isn't lightweight enough for you.

ok, other than the PHPEclipse flavours, PHPDesigner is the only free editor in that list.

Thanks.

If you need a call stack and all that hairy bullshit for PHP, then you don't know what the fuck you're doing.

Check out vim, which has a very nice windows version.  Emacs does as well, if you're that kind of person.  I might also recommend the commercial version of EditPad from JGSoft.

If you want all those features you outlines, eclipse with the PHP environment is a very good choice.  You might be phobic, but it really is a pretty good tool.

If you're willing to install cygwin, I'm pretty sure you can run ed on windows as well.

thanks Tim. I had hard luck with cygwin back in 2005. I will try that this time.
