Result: Discarded

The test labeled "opendir()/readdir()" was the faster by 0.0312 seconds, (3.393% faster)

opendir()/readdir() 100%
glob(GLOB_NOSORT) 96.607%

The opendir()/readdir() test took 0.8897 seconds.
The glob(GLOB_NOSORT) test took 0.9209 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 233,146 loops for a total of 4,662,920 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000007) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.562) milliseconds per 233,146 loops.
  • Total difference 31.25 milliseconds for 4,662,920 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.6287) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.0435) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "opendir()/readdir()", was:

clearstatcache();
$result = array();
$files = array();
$dir = opendir($GLOBALS['basedir'] . '/tests');
while (($file = readdir($dir)) !== false)
{
	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;
	}
}
