Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "is_array() ? x : array(x)" was the faster by 0.0111 seconds, (1.847% faster)
The is_array() ? x : array(x) test took 0.5886 seconds.
The (array) test took 0.5997 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 129,784 loops for a total of 2,595,680 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.554) milliseconds per 129,784 loops.
- Total difference 11.07 milliseconds for 2,595,680 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.5838) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.3742) 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) $j;
The second test, "is_array() ? x : array(x)", was:
for ($j = 0; $j < 1000; $j++) $GLOBALS['dummy'] = is_array($j) ? $j : array($j);
