Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "constants" was the faster by 0.0104 seconds, (0.742% faster)
The constants test took 1.3972 seconds.
The variables test took 1.4077 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 278,923 loops for a total of 5,578,460 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.522) milliseconds per 278,923 loops.
- Total difference 10.45 milliseconds for 5,578,460 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (10.7256) milliseconds and Code 2 was (12.6529) 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;
