Result: SavedThe test labeled "array_merge()" was the faster by 0.0043 seconds, (0.439% faster)
The array_merge() test took 0.9763 seconds.
The add operator test took 0.9806 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 272,136 loops for a total of 5,442,720 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.215) milliseconds per 272,136 loops.
- Total difference 4.30 milliseconds for 5,442,720 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.9893) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.8752) 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'];
