Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "(string)" was the faster by 0.0126 seconds, (2.023% faster)
The (string) test took 0.6093 seconds.
The no cast test took 0.6219 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 149,303 loops for a total of 2,986,060 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.629) milliseconds per 149,303 loops.
- Total difference 12.58 milliseconds for 2,986,060 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.7204) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.5133) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "(string)", was:
for ($j = 0; $j < 1000; $j++) $GLOBALS['dummy'] = 'good morning! ' . (string) $j . ' good night!';
The second test, "no cast", was:
for ($j = 0; $j < 1000; $j++) $GLOBALS['dummy'] = 'good morning! ' . $j . ' good night!';
