Result: SavedThe test labeled "constants" was the faster by 0.0088 seconds, (1.074% faster)
The constants test took 0.8102 seconds.
The variables test took 0.819 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 226,291 loops for a total of 4,525,820 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.440) milliseconds per 226,291 loops.
- Total difference 8.80 milliseconds for 4,525,820 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.4549) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.5903) 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']++;
