As with other languages, PHP has a number of IDEs to make your programming life as easy as possible. I'm not going to cover them here, simply because the world of IDEs is too fast moving for a reference like this one. Go on, use Google - see what other coders are saying. Find ones like you, at your ability level, and see what they like and don't like. Try them all (there are lots of free demos out there!) and eventually you'll settle on one you like.
