Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work efficiently on a web server afterwards is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. If you wish to use any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Also, sites that need the instrument generally perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.
