Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "variables" was the faster by 0.0317 seconds, (7.156% faster)
The variables test took 0.4109 seconds.
The constants test took 0.4426 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 86,001 loops for a total of 1,720,020 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000018) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.584) milliseconds per 86,001 loops.
- Total difference 31.67 milliseconds for 1,720,020 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (4.4893) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.6954) 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;
