Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "strftime()" was the faster by 0.0396 seconds, (6.086% faster)
The strftime() test took 0.6117 seconds.
The date() test took 0.6514 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 148,090 loops for a total of 2,961,800 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000013) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.982) milliseconds per 148,090 loops.
- Total difference 39.64 milliseconds for 2,961,800 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (5.8692) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.8200) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "date()", was:
for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++) $GLOBALS['dummy'] = date('Y-m-d \\a\\t H:i:s', $GLOBALS['t']);
The second test, "strftime()", was:
for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++) $GLOBALS['dummy'] = strftime('%Y-%m-%d at %H:%M:%S', $GLOBALS['t']);
