Many licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to work efficiently on a web server after that is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available.

In addition, websites which need the instrument usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.
