Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is very popular due to the fact that it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which require the tool will perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.
