Result: SavedThe test labeled "array_merge()" was the faster by 0.0114 seconds, (1.105% faster)
The array_merge() test took 1.0201 seconds.
The add operator test took 1.0315 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 295,842 loops for a total of 5,916,840 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.570) milliseconds per 295,842 loops.
- Total difference 11.40 milliseconds for 5,916,840 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.2111) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.2329) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "array_merge()", was:
$array = array_merge($GLOBALS['dummy1'], $GLOBALS['dummy2'], $GLOBALS['dummy3']);
The second test, "add operator", was:
$array = $GLOBALS['dummy1'] + $GLOBALS['dummy2'] + $GLOBALS['dummy3'];
