What is PHPExamine? Why was it made?

PHPExamine is an online equivalent to writing PHP/HTML/JS files with notepad and then uploading them to a webserver and viewing them in a browser.
It was made so that I could practice/work on PHP scripts when away from my home computer so I would not have to have an FTP client where ever I went and so I wouldn't have to trust the foreign computer with my FTP password.

Why is there a search box in the lower right hand corner of PHPExamine?

This is a Quick PHP Manual Lookup box, all you have to do is type a function into the box like 'echo' and click 'Go!' or hit 'Enter' and you will be taken to the manual page for that function, if there is no documentation on the function you type then it will do a search of the function list.
