A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely since it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to run properly on a web server afterwards is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you wish to work with any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which need the tool usually perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.
