Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "(string)" was the faster by 0.0851 seconds, (8.093% faster)
The (string) test took 0.9664 seconds.
The no cast test took 1.0515 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 270,469 loops for a total of 5,409,380 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000016) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (4.255) milliseconds per 270,469 loops.
- Total difference 85.10 milliseconds for 5,409,380 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.6388) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.0105) 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!';
