Test: (string) vs. concat

Concatenating to a string always results in a string, but isn't a cast faster?

Unfortunately, no history for this test is available.


The first test, "(string)", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 1000; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy'] = (string) $j;

The second test, "$string . ''", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 1000; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy'] = $j . '';
