Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "is_array() ? x : array(x)" was the faster by 0.0558 seconds, (4.672% faster)
The is_array() ? x : array(x) test took 1.1386 seconds.
The (array) test took 1.1944 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 271,476 loops for a total of 5,429,520 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000010) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (2.790) milliseconds per 271,476 loops.
- Total difference 55.80 milliseconds for 5,429,520 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (8.5914) milliseconds and Code 2 was (7.1731) 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);
