http://php.net for the docs.

I use notepad or gedit usually :/

there are php IDEs out there. I think on the php site they mention a few.
Asking people for advice on code is also pretty fast usually. via IM or IRC

I dont like to use normal notepad style editors for coding.

Actually what i want is something that can do-

    [*]Auto Indenting
    [*]Syntax Highlighting
    [*]Auto Complete (Intellisense style)
    [*]Display a list of functions,classes etc in the code

I have been told that http://www.zend.com/ is pretty good.

I use http://www.textpad.com for a lot of my coding ... actually all I believe.

VIM (windows or linux)

Macromedia's Dreamweaver if you want a full IDE type deal.

VIM (windows or linux)

(g)VIM is my editor of choice for most files (except for fasm code, when I use fasmw), (g)VIM supports more file formats than I've ever seen, there are different color themes too.

PHP Coder Pro

very good, and if you download the PHP docs, you can get function help like MSFT IntelliSense.....

phpide and maguma studio seem to be the same thing.
There is a lik on the main page to dl maguma studio and throughout the site there are ads for maguma studio. Even the interface i saw in the scrreenshot resembles that of maguma studio.

Whats the diff?
