Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "variables" was the faster by 0.0523 seconds, (4.403% faster)
The variables test took 1.135 seconds.
The constants test took 1.1873 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 248,735 loops for a total of 4,974,700 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000011) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (2.614) milliseconds per 248,735 loops.
- Total difference 52.27 milliseconds for 4,974,700 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (12.1215) milliseconds and Code 2 was (10.5639) 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;
