A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is when a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you would like to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites that need the tool tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
