Dean Householder's User Tools

===The Extended CHM Manual for PHP=== http://www.php.net/docs-echm.php
HTML help file (*.chm)
This is great because I can put my cursor over a word and press CTRL+1 to open then offline manual right to that specific command. This version is greatly updated from the .hlp version.

PHP.net's online PHP manual

  • Command: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE
  • Argument: http://www.php.net/$(CurWord)

This is great because I can put my cursor over a word and press CTRL+2 to open the online manual right to that specific command

===HTML Tidy=== http://tidy.sourceforge.net/

  • Command: tidy.exe -config tidyconfig.txt
  • Argument: "$(FilePath)"
  • Run as Text Filter: Checked

This will automatically clean up your HTML code to whatever standards you designate in the tidyconfig.txt file

===Color Cop=== http://www.datastic.com/tools/colorcop/
This is the best tool for determining what color is being used via a color picker. I use this all the time!

===JRuler=== http://www.spadixbd.com/freetools/jruler.htm
I use the standard free ruler to measure the size of images, tables, content area, etc. It adds a ruler to your screen to measure anything!

===FontLister=== http://home1.inet.tele.dk/theill/fl.htm
Compares all the fonts on my system visually on the screen. (More useful for working with graphics then coding) I'm using version 2.0 which is freeware and does what I want.

===ExamDIFF=== http://www.prestosoft.com/ps.asp?page=edp_examdiff (freeware version)
This compares the differences between two versions of a file. Answers the question: These look the same but which lines are different?

===Virtual Magnifying Glass=== http://www.come.to/magnifier/
This turns your cursor into a magnifying glass which is useful when trying to create pixel-perfect code. I'm currently using an old version, 1.50f, which doesn't install. If anyone wants this version please contact me.


Hope you guys find this useful,
