HOWTO: Use a php script for my editing

Quote:
I want to pass the text that is selected in my editor to a php script, make modifications to the text and then return it back to the editor. So far I know how to run a php script externally from the customizations setting but I don't know how to pass the text in the editor to that script.


Well, you'd follow the instructions below:
1. Create a customization entry (Tools > Settings > Tools > Integration > Add Menu)
2. Set Execute With -> Shell
3. Command line should be
@PHP@ -q "full_path_to_my_script\myscript.php"
if your script is php5, please use @PHP5@ instead of @PHP@ or have .php associated with php5.
4. Other settings:
-check "Show this command in File Bar popup
-check "Work with editor"
-check "Take input from..."
-check "Selected text"
-check "Return results to the editor"
The other settings can be left by default or you can set them according to your needs.

5. your script should read input stream for processing and echo results back, for example:

Code:
<?php

$f = fopen("php://stdin", "r");
$s = fread($f, 100000); // should be big enough
fclose($f);
echo "\"" . $s . "\"";

?>


Please note, that input streeam will be ended with "\n" (line feed), regardless you selected a single char or whole the line.

Very useful scripts integrated this way can be found there:
