Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, which is required to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The second encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. If you need to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you're able to employ Zend Guard and your code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Numerous pre-made script-driven applications, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer to function efficiently since their core code is ordinarily not free to modify. Internet sites which use the instrument are typically faster as their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
