How can the manual for looking PHP functions ie under Preferences | PHP |
manual be set local version of the PHP manual?

Is there a download for that? Can I download the current manual for PHP
and get eclipse to look it up?

You could google for "php <functionname>" and get what you need pretty
quickly. You could also use Eclipse's internal browser if you want to
have it *in* Eclipse, and don't want the built-in version of the manual.

Yes, that's possible. Download the "Many HTML files"-version of the PHP
documentation from http://www.php.net/download-docs.php

After extracting it somewhere, go to "Preferences" -> "PHP" -> "PHP
Manual" and add a "New" entry. Select "Local Directory" and enter the
path where you have extracted the files to. Make sure that "File
Extension" is set to "html".

After marking the new entry as the "Default", the "Open PHP
manual"-action should open the appropriate local html-file.

HTH,
Mark

I believe the PHP manual sources are kept in DocBook format and
generated to the appropriate target formats. What would be nice is if
an eclipse plugin help plugin could be generated, and then installed as
an option into an existing eclipse instance.

Information on how to generate the eclipse help from Docbook can be
found here:

http://wiki.eclipse.org/Authoring_Eclipse_Help_Using_DocBook

Zend could offer this as a download or via their Update site.

Download ZendStudiu trial and there is PHP manual localy, suffice copy one dir from zend
studiu to the eclipse folder and setup php manual preference page as is in Zend Studio.

I'm using that, so it's 100% functional ;)
