Numerous licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to change any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you wish to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites that need the tool can perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
