    alright i have just started learning php but was wondering if there was some sort of client side compiler or pharser thing that would allow me to test my php code without having to upload it to the web on a dial-up internet connection. it is verry hard to learn php when you have a limitation on how long you can be connected

    Just run Apache/PHP on your own computer. See the tutorial here.

    yeah that is what i mean , i want to be able to debug my programs, and view them easily without having to connect... disconect..connect...disconect
    i ony get like 50 hrs a month on dial up and i cant get cable internet because of my location.

    surely there must be a program that will allow me to view my work offline ?

    oh yeah just realized that you don't need a net connection because you can use http://localhost to view your php files
