Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "date()" was the faster by 0.0273 seconds, (4.857% faster)
The date() test took 0.5342 seconds.
The strftime() test took 0.5615 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 138,803 loops for a total of 2,776,060 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000010) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.364) milliseconds per 138,803 loops.
- Total difference 27.27 milliseconds for 2,776,060 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.4440) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.1647) 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']);
