Historical Results

Based on (2) saved test runs, The test labeled "commas" was (on average) the faster by 0.0294 seconds, (3.314% faster)

commas 100%
concat 96.686%

The commas test took 0.8575 seconds.
The concat test took 0.8869 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 208,764 loops for a total of 4,175,270 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000007) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 208,764 loops.
  • Total difference 29.40 milliseconds for 4,175,270 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 ';
