Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "defined()" was the faster by 0.0556 seconds, (5.018% faster)
The defined() test took 1.0527 seconds.
The isset() test took 1.1083 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 286,545 loops for a total of 5,730,900 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000010) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (2.781) milliseconds per 286,545 loops.
- Total difference 55.61 milliseconds for 5,730,900 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.5640) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.1568) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "defined()", was:
$GLOBALS['test'] = defined('CONSTANT');
The second test, "isset()", was:
$GLOBALS['test'] = isset($GLOBALS['CONSTANT']);
