Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "date()" was the faster by 0.0066 seconds, (1.028% faster)
The date() test took 0.6348 seconds.
The strftime() test took 0.6414 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 171,739 loops for a total of 3,434,780 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.330) milliseconds per 171,739 loops.
- Total difference 6.59 milliseconds for 3,434,780 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.0934) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.7608) 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']);
