PhpED is tightly integrated with Nu-Coder - NuSphere's PHP Encoder. Here we explain in details the user interface used to set encoding options available in PhpED. You can find additional information about Nu-Coder in PhpED here as well the information about other parts of the interface with PHP Encoder.

How to set the options for encoding of PHP Files - Options tab

  • Select the version of PHP to encode the scripts for in Encode files will run under (and higher) drop down box
  • Check Preserve extended info for debugging/profiling to Keep extended information for debugger/profiler
  • Check Preserve line numbers info to preserve line numbers information in the encoded script
Encoding Options
  • Check Preserve phpdoc comments to keep php-doc comments, useful for reflection. This option is only applicable for PHP5 and higher versions of PHP.
  • Check Copy non-PHP files to copy non-php files into designated directory tree. This option is only available if you select In designated directory tree option in Destination options.
  • Check Stop on errors if you want the encoding to stop if Nu-Coder encounters an error.
  • Check Suppress successful messages if you don't want the encoding messages to show up in Log tab of PhpED. These messages are only available with In designated directory tree and In-place, with appended extension Destination options
  • Check Support for PHP short tags<??> to enable the support of short tags in encoding
  • Check Support for ASP Style tags<%%> to enable the support of ASP style tags in encoding
