Result: Discarded

The test labeled "scandir()" was the faster by 0.1013 seconds, (14.023% faster)

scandir() 100%
glob(GLOB_NOSORT) 85.977%

The scandir() test took 0.6208 seconds.
The glob(GLOB_NOSORT) test took 0.7221 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 139,786 loops for a total of 2,795,720 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000036) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (5.063) milliseconds per 139,786 loops.
  • Total difference 101.26 milliseconds for 2,795,720 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (5.6976) milliseconds and Code 2 was (8.5351) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

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

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