Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run correctly on a web server afterwards is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites which require the tool generally perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.
