Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widely used due to the fact that it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you would like to employ any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites which need the tool can perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.
