I was using dream weaver in windows as php editor but now i have switched to ubuntu and i want to know which is the best suited php editor available in ubuntu which should be nearest to dream weaver also.Please help me to find out that.
I used Dreamweaver a long time ago, for a short period of time, when I was trying out these "all-in-wonder" things. I never got to like them; they slowed my work down. Nowadays I pretty much dump everything that doesn't work (close to almost) fully via keyboard, because every time I have to touch a mouse to do something, it takes longer than a key combination would. In addition I never got quite as good results with products like Dreamweaver, because I always had to manually alter the code at some point.
On Linux I've used Bluefish, which is great..but on the other hand, now that you can get syntax highlighting for plain text editors like Gedit too, they're pretty useful too. Emacs is quite a good one, but if you have never used it before, I assume it takes some time to learn how to effectively use it..
All in all, if you need a what-you-see-is-what-you-get type of editor, you'll find the few serious choices using your preferred web search tool. In other case, check out Emacs (but only if you're willing to give some time to it, as it won't open to you in 5 minutes I'm afraid) -- I imagine some might say 'Vim' here too.
To me Dreamweaver in web page creation is like Word in writing text -- I prefer LaTeX (Emacs and AUCTeX plus some handy shell scripts I've made for special needs) over Word just the same way I prefer for example Emacs over DW.
