Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "no cast" was the faster by 0.01 seconds, (1.352% faster)
The no cast test took 0.7298 seconds.
The (string) test took 0.7398 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 158,245 loops for a total of 3,164,900 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.500) milliseconds per 158,245 loops.
- Total difference 10.00 milliseconds for 3,164,900 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.3741) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.6207) 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!';
