Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "variables" was the faster by 0.0107 seconds, (1.002% faster)
The variables test took 1.0572 seconds.
The constants test took 1.0679 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 276,395 loops for a total of 5,527,900 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.535) milliseconds per 276,395 loops.
- Total difference 10.70 milliseconds for 5,527,900 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (4.1832) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.2354) 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;
