Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "(string)" was the faster by 0.0266 seconds, (2.845% faster)
The (string) test took 0.9081 seconds.
The no cast test took 0.9347 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 219,195 loops for a total of 4,383,900 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.330) milliseconds per 219,195 loops.
- Total difference 26.59 milliseconds for 4,383,900 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.9502) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.8060) 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!';
