Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's used widely due to the fact that it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to work properly on a web server after that is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you would like to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites which need the tool tend to perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.
