A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely as it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work properly on a web server subsequently is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you'd like to work with any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites which need the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.
