Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is widespread since it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to run correctly on a web server subsequently is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you wish to work with any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites that require the tool can perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
