code folding for PHP

Postby broozer » Fri May 25, 2012 4:33 am

I just downloaded the latest version (2.0.3) and noticed that code folding was introduced with version 2.0.0. Since most of my coding is in PHP , I was wondering whether this feature will be introduced for PHP files too (currently code folding is greyed out) ?

By the way : thanks again for this tool.Is there a 'Donate' button somewhere ...

The tricky thing about folding PHP code is that they could spit out opening/closing tags from PHP code, which would prevent the fold parser from identifying matching tags. I'm thinking this may be a rare case though (at least, rare to spit out only an opening or closing tag; I can see PHP generating both the opening and closing tag somewhat frequently, but that wouldn't be a problem). So if folks are willing to live with that limitation, there's no reason folding couldn't be added to PHP.
