Test: (array) vs. array() w/is_array()

Does the (array) cast work better than the array() construct if you might already have an array?

Unfortunately, no history for this test is available.


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);
