Historical ResultsBased on (4) saved test runs, The test labeled "addslashes()" was (on average) the faster by 0.0056 seconds, (0.821% faster)
The addslashes() test took 0.6722 seconds.
The mysql_escape_string() test took 0.6777 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 170,709 loops for a total of 3,414,175 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 170,709 loops.
- Total difference 5.57 milliseconds for 3,414,175 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "addslashes()", was:
$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = addslashes($GLOBALS['dummy']);
The second test, "mysql_escape_string()", was:
$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = mysql_real_escape_string($GLOBALS['dummy']);
