Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "constants" was the faster by 0.0571 seconds, (3.605% faster)
The constants test took 1.5261 seconds.
The variables test took 1.5832 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 281,449 loops for a total of 5,628,980 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000010) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (2.854) milliseconds per 281,449 loops.
- Total difference 57.08 milliseconds for 5,628,980 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (10.9679) milliseconds and Code 2 was (13.1488) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "constants", was:
define('CONSTANT' . $GLOBALS['i'], $GLOBALS['x'] . $GLOBALS['y'] . $GLOBALS['z']); $GLOBALS['i']++;
The second test, "variables", was:
$GLOBALS['CONSTANT' . $GLOBALS['i']] = $GLOBALS['x'] . $GLOBALS['y'] . $GLOBALS['z']; $GLOBALS['i']++;
