Historical Results

Based on (6) saved test runs, The test labeled "commas" was (on average) the faster by 0.0085 seconds, (0.911% faster)

commas 100%
concat 99.089%

The commas test took 0.9283 seconds.
The concat test took 0.9368 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 229,187 loops for a total of 4,583,747 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 229,187 loops.
  • Total difference 8.54 milliseconds for 4,583,747 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.


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 ';
