Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "array_merge()" was the faster by 0.0697 seconds, (8.641% faster)
The array_merge() test took 0.7364 seconds.
The add operator test took 0.8061 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 140,383 loops for a total of 2,807,660 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000025) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (3.483) milliseconds per 140,383 loops.
- Total difference 69.65 milliseconds for 2,807,660 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (7.9799) milliseconds and Code 2 was (7.1105) 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'];
