    PHP Obfuscator Suggestions?

    I'm looking for a free PHP Obfuscator.

    I found one, but it's a bit buggy and doesn't seem to want to obfuscate files that end in .php.inc http://www.raizlabs.com/software/phpobfuscator/

    I do like the idea of that app's implementation because all the variable and function names are obfuscated, rather than relying on the easily reversable exec base_64.

    I know zend and ioncube are the top dogs in this area, but they're outside what I can afford or want to spend.

    Any suggestions? Thanks

    If you are not willing to invest in your application then it is really worth it to even try and sell it? Do you feel it is even required to obfuscate your code that is so mindlessly easy to circumvent? I can tell you right now, with a little code beautifier and search and replace makes for an easy restructuring of your code in full.
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    Thanks Darren884...that's actually a pretty good find

    logic_earth, the logic was that if someone was going to go through all the trouble of reverse engineering, there wasn't much I could do to stop it without costing me a lot more than the app was worth. However, I it didn't occur to me that code beautifiers could be used...good point there.
