Result: Discarded

The test labeled "commas" was the faster by 0.0621 seconds, (8.070% faster)

commas 100%
concat 91.93%

The commas test took 0.7075 seconds.
The concat test took 0.7696 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 181,042 loops for a total of 3,620,840 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000017) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (3.106) milliseconds per 181,042 loops.
  • Total difference 62.11 milliseconds for 3,620,840 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.2727) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.6898) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "commas", was:

echo $GLOBALS['x'], ' test ', $GLOBALS['y'], $GLOBALS['z'], ' test ';

The second test, "concat", was:

echo $GLOBALS['x'] . ' test ' . $GLOBALS['y'] . $GLOBALS['z'] . ' test ';
