Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widespread since it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you would like to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which need the instrument will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more quickly.
