Result: SavedThe test labeled "constants" was the faster by 0.0032 seconds, (0.618% faster)
The constants test took 0.5152 seconds.
The variables test took 0.5184 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 146,334 loops for a total of 2,926,680 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.160) milliseconds per 146,334 loops.
- Total difference 3.20 milliseconds for 2,926,680 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.2744) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.1906) 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;
