Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "variables" was the faster by 0.0093 seconds, (1.850% faster)
The variables test took 0.495 seconds.
The constants test took 0.5043 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 119,880 loops for a total of 2,397,600 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.466) milliseconds per 119,880 loops.
- Total difference 9.33 milliseconds for 2,397,600 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.8782) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.3172) 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;
