Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "(array)" was the faster by 0.0333 seconds, (3.195% faster)
The (array) test took 1.0093 seconds.
The is_array() ? x : array(x) test took 1.0426 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 228,075 loops for a total of 4,561,500 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000007) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.666) milliseconds per 228,075 loops.
- Total difference 33.31 milliseconds for 4,561,500 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.0883) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.3644) 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);
