Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "variables" was the faster by 0.0216 seconds, (4.081% faster)
The variables test took 0.5073 seconds.
The constants test took 0.5288 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 129,473 loops for a total of 2,589,460 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000008) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.079) milliseconds per 129,473 loops.
- Total difference 21.58 milliseconds for 2,589,460 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.5530) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.6450) 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']++;
