Historical Results

Based on (25) saved test runs, The test labeled "glob()" was (on average) the faster by 0.0099 seconds, (1.113% faster)

glob() 100%
glob(GLOB_NOSORT) 98.887%

The glob() test took 0.8763 seconds.
The glob(GLOB_NOSORT) test took 0.8862 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 220,551 loops for a total of 4,411,029 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 220,551 loops.
  • Total difference 9.87 milliseconds for 4,411,029 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) 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;
	}
}
