Plenty of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used since it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to work correctly on a web server after that is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites which require the tool can perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.
