Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "variables" was the faster by 0.0187 seconds, (3.862% faster)
The variables test took 0.4643 seconds.
The constants test took 0.483 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 117,126 loops for a total of 2,342,520 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000008) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.933) milliseconds per 117,126 loops.
- Total difference 18.65 milliseconds for 2,342,520 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.5655) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.1136) 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']++;
