Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "variables" was the faster by 0.0168 seconds, (2.604% faster)
The variables test took 0.6292 seconds.
The constants test took 0.6461 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 135,442 loops for a total of 2,708,840 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.841) milliseconds per 135,442 loops.
- Total difference 16.82 milliseconds for 2,708,840 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (7.0095) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.6462) 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']++;
