Result: SavedThe test labeled "(string)" was the faster by 0.0114 seconds, (1.096% faster)
The (string) test took 1.0308 seconds.
The no cast test took 1.0422 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 272,667 loops for a total of 5,453,340 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.571) milliseconds per 272,667 loops.
- Total difference 11.43 milliseconds for 5,453,340 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.6189) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.6784) 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!';
