Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is very popular since it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to run correctly on a web server after that is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you want to employ any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites which need the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.
