Historical ResultsBased on (4) saved test runs, The test labeled "(array)" was (on average) the faster by 0.0093 seconds, (1.376% faster)
The (array) test took 0.6672 seconds.
The array() test took 0.6765 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 177,445 loops for a total of 3,548,905 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 177,445 loops.
- Total difference 9.31 milliseconds for 3,548,905 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "(array)", was:
for ($j = 0; $j < 1000; $j++) $GLOBALS['dummy'] = (array) $j;
The second test, "array()", was:
for ($j = 0; $j < 1000; $j++) $GLOBALS['dummy'] = array($j);
