Result: SavedThe test labeled "(array)" was the faster by 0.0164 seconds, (1.666% faster)
The (array) test took 0.9707 seconds.
The is_array() ? x : array(x) test took 0.9871 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 257,516 loops for a total of 5,150,320 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.822) milliseconds per 257,516 loops.
- Total difference 16.44 milliseconds for 5,150,320 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.6473) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.5236) 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);
