Historical ResultsBased on (1) saved test runs, The test labeled "array_merge()" was (on average) the faster by 0.0071 seconds, (0.688% faster)
The array_merge() test took 1.0279 seconds.
The add operator test took 1.035 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 284,697 loops for a total of 5,693,940 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 284,697 loops.
- Total difference 7.12 milliseconds for 5,693,940 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) 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'];
