Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely as it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you want to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites that need the tool can perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
