Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "constants" was the faster by 0.0092 seconds, (1.722% faster)
The constants test took 0.5252 seconds.
The variables test took 0.5344 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 137,068 loops for a total of 2,741,360 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.460) milliseconds per 137,068 loops.
- Total difference 9.20 milliseconds for 2,741,360 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.8547) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.2485) 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;
