Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "no cast" was the faster by 0.0371 seconds, (2.696% faster)
The no cast test took 1.3376 seconds.
The (string) test took 1.3747 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 288,615 loops for a total of 5,772,300 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.853) milliseconds per 288,615 loops.
- Total difference 37.06 milliseconds for 5,772,300 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (7.9570) milliseconds and Code 2 was (9.7385) 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!';
