+1. I do absolutely all of my work in Sublime Text, which offers limited
autocompletion, which I hardly use. The only time I do use it is for
needle-haystack functions, as you mentioned.

The best way to remember needle-haystack order is: array functions use
needle, haystack; string functions use haystack, needle. This is true
(IIRC) for all array/string functions. I usually double-check with
autocompletion though.
