What precisely is Zend Optimizer? How will it impact the functionality of a PHP application?
Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, which is needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The aforementioned encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and illegal use, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you want to protect your custom script, for example, you will be able to employ Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Numerous pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer so as to operate properly since their core code is usually not free to change. Websites which use the instrument are normally speedier because their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.
