All interfaces allow the user to pass various parameters to the encoder to control the way PHP Sources are compiled into bytecodes and the creation of output files.
Using either of these interfaces you can:

Encode and protect PHP files in the entire given directory and its sub-directories

Encode single PHP file and save results into output file.

Tell Nu-Coder to create output file's name by appending given extension at the end of the source file name

Overwrite the source file with encoded content

Perform Syntax check only and not produce any encoded content

In directory processing mode, encode only files with certain extensions (defaults are php and inc)

Copy all non-php files into target directory

Ignore errors and continue encoding

Turn off support for short php tags <? ?>

Turn on support for asp style php tags <%>

Keep extended information for php debugger and php profiler

Preserve line numbers information

Do not strip php-doc comments, useful for reflection

Exclude specified files from encoding when processing entire directories. For example Nu-Coder will not encode config_mysite.php if --exclude option is specified as --exclude config*.php

Ability to exclude specified files from copying when option -copyall is used

Ability to automatically load PhpExpress - NuSphere's FREE PHP Accelerator and loader from extensions directory even if it is not loaded in php.ini (for PHP 5.2 and higher only)

Deploying Encoded PHP files with NuSphere PhpDock

NuSphere PhpDock is a unique PHP deployment solution, which enables you to deploy any PHP web application as a Stand Alone Windows Desktop application w/o any changes in the code. Starting with version 1.6 PhpDock fully supports deployment of encoded PHP files same way it does it with regular PHP and HTML source files. No additional action is required.

Deploying Encoded PHP files with NuSphere PhpExpress

PHP files encoded with NuSphere Nu-Coder require special loader present in PHP interpreter. PhpExpress is NuSphere Free PHP loader and accelerator that provides support for encoded files and also speeds up the execution of regular PHP files.
PhpExpress can be downloaded from NuSphere website and distributed Free Of Charge without limitations. Every Nu-Coder installation also comes with PhpExpress.
This is how PhpExpress works:

When PHP interpreter executes any PHP script it first compiles the script into bytecodes. However Nu-Coder produces PHP files that have been already compiled into bytecodes.
PhpExpress loads encoded PHP scripts directly into PHP engine saving time and boosting performance of PHP interpretor
PhpExpress also implements caching for PHP engine and accelerates execution process even if PHP Script is not encoded
