Historical ResultsBased on (1) saved test runs, The test labeled "isset()" was (on average) the faster by 0.029 seconds, (4.493% faster)
The isset() test took 0.6167 seconds.
The defined() test took 0.6458 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 143,016 loops for a total of 2,860,320 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000010) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 143,016 loops.
- Total difference 29.02 milliseconds for 2,860,320 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) 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']);
