Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "constants" was the faster by 0.0141 seconds, (2.262% faster)
The constants test took 0.6088 seconds.
The variables test took 0.6229 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 156,256 loops for a total of 3,125,120 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.704) milliseconds per 156,256 loops.
- Total difference 14.09 milliseconds for 3,125,120 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.7568) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.1045) 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']++;
