Based on (39) saved test runs, The test labeled "scandir()" was (on average) the faster by 0.0116 seconds, (1.423% faster)

scandir() 100%
glob(GLOB_NOSORT) 98.577%

The scandir() test took 0.8037 seconds.
The glob(GLOB_NOSORT) test took 0.8153 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 206,287 loops for a total of 4,125,745 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 206,287 loops.
  • Total difference 11.60 milliseconds for 4,125,745 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, "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;
	}
}
