Aaron,

Don't know much about PHP, but we use Net.Data (which some say is
PHP-like).  Step-through debugging is impossible.  You wind up displaying
variable values and putting exit statements in the code to stop execution.

We're working on getting logic out of our Net.Data code, but it's going to
be a long process.  But it will make it easier for us to get out of
Net.Data and into J2EE, which is where I'd like to head.

That will teach me to go off of what books (SAMS, Dreamweaver) say before
searching the internet.  Everything that I have read in books and the
developers that I have talked to take the long way around for debugging.
They write stuff to standard out over and over again until they find the
logical error!  Ouch.

Thanks for the correction Hans.

Does anybody else develop PHP here?  What do you use for your IDE/Editor?

Well, I've never done any PHP programming, but I know how to use
Google. A Google search on "PHP debugging" yielded about 638,000
hits. Were none of those pages useful?

Cheers! Hans
