Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "array_merge()" was the faster by 0.0173 seconds, (1.941% faster)
The array_merge() test took 0.876 seconds.
The add operator test took 0.8933 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 218,823 loops for a total of 4,376,460 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.867) milliseconds per 218,823 loops.
- Total difference 17.34 milliseconds for 4,376,460 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (4.4749) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.1984) 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'];
