"noob" hacker from seeing your codes.
But those "professional hacker", they could decode it even if you encode your scripts.
To be a coder, you must learn how to think and not to give up so easily.

* You save your script in either .phps which highlights the source code (the server must be configured in order for this to happen), or if you save your files with a file extension other than .php. But if you are saving your files as filename.inc everyone can see the source code. UNLESS your server is configured to parse .inc files as PHP
* A hacker manages to obtain your FTP/Web site control panel details
Thats the only way of someone managing to view the source code of your PHP scripts.
Now the reason why people may encode thier source code is because they may be selling thier scripts and dont want thier customers to edit the script in anyway, such as removing the copywrite from the script. Encode/Decoding PHP source code can be very expensive, unless the hacker has a few $1000+ hanging about in order to decrypt the source code.
