Is there a way to debug/validate PHP through the parser. I'm using Windows 2k w/ PHP executable. I know you can check Perl syntax with parser/module, is that available with PHP?

OR

Are there any free PHP validators/debugging utilities like the CSS and HTML validators from the W3C?

You could use Zend studio which has a great built in debugger - but it's not free.

I have also tried PHPEdit, but had some problems with that.

Or you can try Komodo from ActiveState and NuspherePHPEd from Nusphere corporation. I guess there is something like PHPEdit too !!

Thanks for the info guys.

dkjariwala, I'm going to check out your link but do you know if any of them are FREE and actually debug/validate. Cause I've worked with AceHTML 5 Pro, which supports PHP but doesn't offer debugging.

I have tried http://soysal.free.fr/PHPEd and http://www.php-ide.com . Both are superb.

The answers would be just what I'm looking for, if it wasn't that in between times the links lead nowhere.
Does anyone have valid links?
