Lots of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular due to the fact that it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to work properly on a web server after that is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you'd like to work with any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites which require the instrument generally perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
