That is sad to hear, I have never done the same thing you are now, but I 
thought it could help.

I had no idea, I thought short tags also implied short if-else, short echo and 
so on, good to know that, thanks for the clarification ;)

Eclipse/Zend Studio is so full of options that you can miss a lot of them. 
Another downside of the little arrow thing is that it doesn't recognize arrays, 
which is obvious because arrays can only be read on runtime, well, same thing 
as objects.

Yeah I know it displays a lot of information, but I use it sometimes and it's 
the only way I know to display all variables, arrays and stuff in a neat and 
nice way. You can also install xDebug and use the included debugger in ZS, but 
sometimes using a simple print_r is faster.
