Ignore everything, just enter the code and check if it still works.

That meaning the message? I'll re-send it now:

I have used PHP Processor 1.5 from http://gridinsoft.com for this. Back
when I was looking around it was the only offering which did not require
me to modify my source code and it does not require the clients to
install anything. This one is not free but it is very reasonably priced.
It is also a PHP editor but I never used it for that. You can simply
import a fully project, I used to run a project with multiple subdirs
and about 1.5MB of source code through it.
It can remove all newline and linefeed chars, replace $variable with
$asdFDG and do the same with functions and classes.
You can exclude global variables, functions or classes by using a simple
This program has performed very well but I stopped using it because
would have to test everything twice.
Using it on pure PHP scripts should work flawless and I will probably
start using this program again for my license handling class.
I know that this tool is available for "free" on some websites but make
sure you purchase the latest edition. The program had a bug when
generating random variables or function names. I reported it and they
fixed it, so get the patched version or you will not be very happy :)
