Result: Discarded

The test labeled "glob()" was the faster by 0.0506 seconds, (4.556% faster)

glob() 100%
glob(GLOB_NOSORT) 95.444%

The glob() test took 1.0601 seconds.
The glob(GLOB_NOSORT) test took 1.1107 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 278,413 loops for a total of 5,568,260 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000009) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (2.530) milliseconds per 278,413 loops.
  • Total difference 50.60 milliseconds for 5,568,260 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.5204) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.4936) 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;
	}
}
