PHPCoder is a frontend to the Turck MMCache encoding functions. It encodes your PHP scripts and applications into non-reversible bytecode, so users of your programs can't see or change the source code, but still have full functionality. It encodes your application's PHP configuration files so someone viewing your source code sees neither your database login not password information. You can also set restrictions on the encoded scripts, lock a script to a particular server IP address, server host name, visitor IP, or place a time limit on the script so it will expire after a set amount of time. You specify Text, HTML, or PHP code that should be prepended and appended to each file before it is encoded, so you can easily and securely implement your own licensing scheme.
