Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "(string)" was the faster by 0.062 seconds, (5.266% faster)
The (string) test took 1.1157 seconds.
The no cast test took 1.1777 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 276,486 loops for a total of 5,529,720 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000011) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (3.101) milliseconds per 276,486 loops.
- Total difference 62.01 milliseconds for 5,529,720 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (8.4704) milliseconds and Code 2 was (11.9190) 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!';
