Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Text editor for Windows, part of PHP Essential Training.
- [Narrator] In this movie, we're going to make sure…you have a good text editor installed.…This is what we'll use to write our PHP code.…Now if you've coded before, you may already have…a favorite text editor, and if so that's great.…You can feel free to use any text editor that you want.…The only requirement is that any application you use…should generate only text at the end.…That's what a text editor does.…It's very different from a word processor,…something like Microsoft Word.…Word would make a terrible choice for a text editor,…and that's because it's built to serve a different purpose,…which is to format the text in a document.…
So Word documents are not just text;…they include lots of formatting information as well,…like what font you're using, or where your margins are set,…and we don't all that formatting information.…We just want the code: the PHP instructions…that Apache will interpret to return web pages.…In addition, text editors, or code editors as they're…sometimes called, often include lots of other nice features…
