Compiled php programs

P: n/a
Is it possible to compile php source to create a binary?

I am thinking along the lines of building an application for folks,
but do not want them to have access to the source code. I like php and
perl, but am not sure if there is a way to "secure" my programs if I
use them.

Yes and No - Check out http://www.zend.com - It will 'compile' it but I
believe, in order for your customer to run your code, they need a free
utility from zend... but it will make your code 'secure' (ie protect its
source code from anyone server side viewing it).
