Online PHP Editor (Part 2) (Contest 9) Results
Hi everybody,

   Here are the results of contest 9 (Online PHP Editor Part2). The contest was held in the month of May-Jun 2004. Last date of submission of entries was Saturday 12th June 2004 at 23.59 (GMT). A total of 3 entries were submitted. The submitted entries were tested on following browsers:

[1] IE 5.0
[2] Galeon 1.2.5
[3] Mozilla 1.1 and 1.6
[4] Konqueror 3.0.3

   The efforts put by the entrants are really appreciable and the functionality of editors are imaginative at some places. I think we can come up with one of the best softwares if we keep our efforts continued.

   The discriptive results of each entrant's editor are listed below with their snap shots.

• The options in editor and their behavior are as follows:

:: File Helper ::
   This option shows a list of files present in the editor root directory and its sub directories. It detects a type of file by it's extension, and according to the recognised file type, it suggest appropriate code insertions (like: execution, html link insertion, php command require() insertion and stylesheet link insertion). Each listed file has options for 'edit' and 'delete'. File helper can upload a file to a desired location and can save it with a different filename.

(question mark) key is pressed, '¿?' key is inserted (Mozilla 1.6).
