Why I am bringing this up now? I am working on a large project, and just spent almost 4 hours tracking down a bug caused by a singe misplaced character.
Is there a good (free) IDE for PHP 5 that has color coding, and has an active debug of some kind so that I can catch mistakes early ?

I'm sure others will have suggestions of free options you can try though.

You'll need to download and install Eclipse before installing the plugin but both are free: http://www.eclipse.org/

Oh, and you can debug your PHP right through the IDE.

Havent done any PHP work in years but I would highly recommend PHPED, try it for a few days, I doubt you will be disappointed, cant really compare it to any other PHP ide but it does excellent debugging features among other things
