Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely due to the fact that it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run effectively on a web server afterwards is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you wish to employ any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites which need the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more quickly.
