Result: SavedThe test labeled "array_merge()" was the faster by 0.0094 seconds, (1.550% faster)
The array_merge() test took 0.5995 seconds.
The add operator test took 0.6089 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 141,783 loops for a total of 2,835,660 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.472) milliseconds per 141,783 loops.
- Total difference 9.44 milliseconds for 2,835,660 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.3005) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.2227) 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'];
