Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "variables" was the faster by 0.0264 seconds, (5.302% faster)
The variables test took 0.4721 seconds.
The constants test took 0.4985 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 129,144 loops for a total of 2,582,880 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000010) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.322) milliseconds per 129,144 loops.
- Total difference 26.43 milliseconds for 2,582,880 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.7564) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.6615) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "constants", was:
$GLOBALS['test'] = CONSTANT + 1;
The second test, "variables", was:
$GLOBALS['test'] = $GLOBALS['CONSTANT'] + 1;
