Result: SavedThe test labeled "date()" was the faster by 0.0162 seconds, (2.015% faster)
The date() test took 0.7895 seconds.
The strftime() test took 0.8058 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 199,396 loops for a total of 3,987,920 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.812) milliseconds per 199,396 loops.
- Total difference 16.24 milliseconds for 3,987,920 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (4.5683) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.6287) 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']);
