There is a class of programs, to facilitate and ease the work of the developer, called IDE - "Integrated development environment" or "Integrated debugging environment". They combine all the tools that webmaster may require for efficient and rapid development of his applications. Typically, IDE is created for one certain language. This may be a development environment for C, Pascal, Java or PHP.
It should be noted, however, that the full potential of IDE is available only to those webmasters, who in addition to HTML page-proofs and CSS styles, understand and use object-oriented programming, classes, objects, and variables, structures, and database management. To get the most from the convenience of IDE and start coding quickly and efficiently, you need to spend some time exploring the program, its interface and all possibilities. You need to "get used" to operate in it.
