Hi, I am old Delphi programmer. but I am new Php programmer.
Dev php is good tool for php. But You need auto variable name completion.
For example if user write $, then press ctrl + space
it should list all variables.
if user write $a, then pres ctrl + space
it shoul list variables if first charecter start $a
I know it is very hard operation with delphi and synedit. But I think it is very important for php developers.
May be you can use your own database for each php project.
if you want to use data base I am recommended Firebird Embedit version
