How assured can I be that people will NOT be able to view my php code?

I'm creating an e-commerce site that will contain sensitive information 
and algorithms. I want to to take every precaution possible to protect 
that data and code.

One concern in particular is the ability to view the contents of a file 
through PHP, rather than through HTTP. I've noticed that many file 
functions do not work for non-local files, which is good. But can a good 
hacker still get access some indirect way?

Thank you!
