Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "strftime()" was the faster by 0.0197 seconds, (2.989% faster)
The strftime() test took 0.6393 seconds.
The date() test took 0.659 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 164,563 loops for a total of 3,291,260 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.985) milliseconds per 164,563 loops.
- Total difference 19.70 milliseconds for 3,291,260 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (4.9836) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.7107) 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']);
