PHP Manual Preferences

The PHP Manual preferences page sets the location of sites which allow you to access and view the PHP Manual and allows you to add, edit or remove sites.


The PHP Manual contains an explanation of PHP functions. PHP Manuals can be accessed online or locally from within PDT in order to provide an immediate explanation of the functionality and proper use of all PHP functions.


The PHP Manual Preferences Preferences page is accessed from Window | Preferences | PHP | PHP Manual Preferences .
