Default decoding encoding

(Newbie question!)

I've bought a PHP script that is encoded, and I need to change some of the HTML output. Is there anyway I can decode the script into normal, readable, understandable PHP so I can edit it?

The script currently looks like

<? eval(gzinflate(base64_decode('longlistofcharacters '))); ?>

Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can give!

Best wishes,
Rupe

Uhh.. not likely. An encoded, but still executable, PHP script is NOT just base 64 encoded. Chances are it's precompiled. If you bought it, perhaps the folks who sell it are willing to tweak the output slightly for you.


Take care,

Nik

Thanks Nik :),

Unfortunately the person who wrote it isn't responding to my emails, so I'll have to wait a while.

Best wishes,
