Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "(string)" was the faster by 0.0095 seconds, (1.408% faster)
The (string) test took 0.6635 seconds.
The no cast test took 0.673 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 188,762 loops for a total of 3,775,240 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.474) milliseconds per 188,762 loops.
- Total difference 9.47 milliseconds for 3,775,240 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.6051) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.8163) 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!';
