Thanks for the advice. I have a Mac for personal use and a Window for work. I will probably just use the mac then. for text editors, in PHP for the Web Larry mentions TextMate so I downloaded that last night. I have no experience to reference but it seems to work alright. I just looked up Sublime, Netbeans, and Eclipse. I ended up downloading Netbeans. Thanks again.
Hi, Thanks ahead of time for your help. I am new to programming and web development. Currently, I'm trying to wrap my head around whether I should code on Macs OSX or a Windows computer. Does it matter if I use a Mac or Windows machine to code PHP? As i continue to learn different programing language is it better to use a Mac or a Windows for certain programs? If I do use a Mac what is the best source code editor? If I use a Windows computer is Notepad ++ a good option? Thank you again for your insight. Jimmy
