Result: Discarded

The test labeled "glob(GLOB_NOSORT)" was the faster by 0.0702 seconds, (12.548% faster)

glob(GLOB_NOSORT) 100%
DirectoryIterator() 87.452%

The glob(GLOB_NOSORT) test took 0.489 seconds.
The DirectoryIterator() test took 0.5592 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 120,120 loops for a total of 2,402,400 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000029) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (3.508) milliseconds per 120,120 loops.
  • Total difference 70.17 milliseconds for 2,402,400 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (7.2958) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.1178) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

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

$result = array();
foreach (new DirectoryIterator($GLOBALS['basedir'] . '/tests') as $file)
{
	if (!$file->isDot())
	    $result[] = $file->getFilename();
}

The second test, "glob(GLOB_NOSORT)", was:

$result = array();
foreach (glob($GLOBALS['basedir'] . '/tests/*', GLOB_NOSORT) as $file)
{
	if ($file !== '.' && $file !== '..')
		$result[] = $file;
}
