A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widely used since it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work properly on a web server afterwards is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you want to employ any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites which need the instrument usually perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
