What exactly is Zend Optimizer? Just how can it influence the functionality of a PHP application?
Zend Optimizer is a well-known software, which is needed to run files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you'd like to protect your custom-written script, for instance, you're able to take advantage of Zend Guard and your program code will no longer be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. A number of ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones that are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to operate correctly because their core code is usually not free to modify. Internet sites which use the tool are often speedier because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
