PHP function sorting/reorder utility?
« on: December 01, 2008, 11:18:00 AM »
When writing classes for PHP I find that it would be nice to re-order the functions.  I would like a tool that displays the functions in a class and allows me to move it up or down in the order.  Then the tool would apply the re-order.  Kinda of like the screenshot below.  Anyone know of such a tool?

I like to have like functions grouped together but during development sometimes things get moved around.

I looked at many IDE's but counldn't find one that had this kind of functionality.   I'm surprised there is anything out there.

As a user of IDEs with the ability to jump to functions in a matter of a few keystrokes, I am curious why you want such functionality. Is it simply for readability purposes?

1) I like things organized and want like functions together

2) I do all my PHP coding in a text editor (emEditor) so I do a lot of scrolling around looking for functions.

I have tried many, many time to get away from a text editor and I just can't.  I am very comfortable in a text editor for writing code - still do all my HTML, CSS and PHP in a text editor.
