sorry, i don't quite understand your question. do you mean what program you need to write a perl or php scripts??

If that is the case. just a simple note pad will do.

To write programs in cgi, all you need is notepad...any simple text editor will do.

Do not use ntoepad or word pad for any scripting!

The above message is not a matter of preferance, likes or dislikes.  Notepad and wordpad may be fine text editors but they do not retain line feeds and therefore files saved using notepad or wordpad will error if run as scripts.

Instead use a program like bbedit, textpad, ultraedit, etc....

there is a free html editor (html-kit) that has plug-ins for PHP4, Perl, etc.  Quite an extensive library of plug-ins are available.


html-kit

It just makes life a little easier.
