Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "constants" was the faster by 0.062 seconds, (5.752% faster)
The constants test took 1.0156 seconds.
The variables test took 1.0776 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 270,121 loops for a total of 5,402,420 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000011) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (3.099) milliseconds per 270,121 loops.
- Total difference 61.98 milliseconds for 5,402,420 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.6646) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.4757) 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;
