Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widespread as it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to work the right way on a web server afterwards is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you'd like to work with any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which require the tool will perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
