Result: Discarded

The test labeled "glob()" was the faster by 0.0137 seconds, (1.320% faster)

glob() 100%
glob(GLOB_NOSORT) 98.68%

The glob() test took 1.0244 seconds.
The glob(GLOB_NOSORT) test took 1.0381 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 276,806 loops for a total of 5,536,120 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.685) milliseconds per 276,806 loops.
  • Total difference 13.70 milliseconds for 5,536,120 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.8549) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.6901) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "glob()", was:

clearstatcache();
$result = array();
foreach (glob($GLOBALS['basedir'] . '/tests/*') as $file)
{
	if (!is_dir($file))
	{
		$result[] = $file;
	}
}

The second test, "glob(GLOB_NOSORT)", was:

clearstatcache();
$result = array();
foreach (glob($GLOBALS['basedir'] . '/tests/*', GLOB_NOSORT) as $file)
{
	if (!is_dir($file))
	{
		$result[] = $file;
	}
}
