Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "defined()" was the faster by 0.0077 seconds, (0.697% faster)
The defined() test took 1.0981 seconds.
The isset() test took 1.1058 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 262,307 loops for a total of 5,246,140 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.385) milliseconds per 262,307 loops.
- Total difference 7.71 milliseconds for 5,246,140 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.6312) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.9717) 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']);
