Historical Results

Based on (2) saved test runs, The test labeled "ord()" was (on average) the faster by 0.0086 seconds, (1.231% faster)

ord() 100%
unpack() 98.769%

The ord() test took 0.6913 seconds.
The unpack() test took 0.6999 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 167,898 loops for a total of 3,357,960 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 167,898 loops.
  • Total difference 8.62 milliseconds for 3,357,960 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "ord()", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy'] = array(
	0 => ord($GLOBALS['packed']{0}),
	1 => ord($GLOBALS['packed']{1}),
	2 => ord($GLOBALS['packed']{2}),
	3 => ord($GLOBALS['packed']{3}),
);

The second test, "unpack()", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy'] = unpack('C4', $GLOBALS['packed']);
