The test labeled "create_function()" was the faster by 0.0018 seconds, (0.339% faster)

create_function() 100%
eval() 99.661%

The create_function() test took 0.5243 seconds.
The eval() test took 0.5261 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 129,995 loops for a total of 2,599,900 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.089) milliseconds per 129,995 loops.
  • Total difference 1.78 milliseconds for 2,599,900 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.0756) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.0493) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "eval()", was:

eval('
	$x = 0;
	$x += 5;

	if ($x >= 5)
		$x = 0;

	$x;
	$x;');

The second test, "create_function()", was:

/*
$GLOBALS['dummy'] = create_function('', '
	$x = 0;
	$x += 5;

	if ($x >= 5)
		$x = 0;

	$x;
	$x;');
*/

$GLOBALS['dummy']();
