It's funny how an editor-switch comes about. My old version of UE, could
not do this, and I really didn't care, except that the "editor question"
reared its head again on the PHP list. Keep in mind this was probably close
to four years ago.
The capability of EditPlus to edit remote files was promoted as one of the
things it could do - at the time I was working on a project for a client
for which there was no SSH access - so I downloaded it and began using it
occasionally ... and the use became more and more frequent.
UE still lives on my machine, but it's no longer my "daily editor" but it
is invaluable if I have to look at a binary file. Ian Meade has a fine
editor there. Maybe I should download the latest version and give it a try.
When I last checked, its FTPdown/Edit/FTPup cycle was not transparent, but
that may have been v. 9 or v.10 - my copy is a pretty old v.7.
What I would really like would be EditPlus / UltraEdit simplicity and
speed, with the capability to interactively provide function names and
their parameters. Similar to VB or Zend Studio, BUT while working on the
server. Yeah, an oxyMORONIC request. <g>
