The test labeled "scandir()" was the faster by 0.0894 seconds, (16.369% faster)

scandir() 100%
glob(GLOB_NOSORT) 83.631%

The scandir() test took 0.4567 seconds.
The glob(GLOB_NOSORT) test took 0.5461 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 15,245 loops for a total of 304,900 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000293) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (4.469) milliseconds per 15,245 loops.
  • Total difference 89.39 milliseconds for 304,900 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (17.4248) milliseconds and Code 2 was (17.3991) 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;
	}
}
