Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "constants" was the faster by 0.009 seconds, (0.760% faster)
The constants test took 1.1809 seconds.
The variables test took 1.1899 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 279,993 loops for a total of 5,599,860 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.452) milliseconds per 279,993 loops.
- Total difference 9.04 milliseconds for 5,599,860 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.4779) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.6643) 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;
