Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "constants" was the faster by 0.0498 seconds, (7.744% faster)
The constants test took 0.5929 seconds.
The variables test took 0.6426 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 125,193 loops for a total of 2,503,860 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000020) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (2.488) milliseconds per 125,193 loops.
- Total difference 49.77 milliseconds for 2,503,860 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (5.4315) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.9877) 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']++;
