Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 279,294 loops for a total of 5,585,880 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000007) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.988) milliseconds per 279,294 loops.
  • Total difference 39.77 milliseconds for 5,585,880 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (8.8441) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.8957) 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, "interpolation", was:

echo "$GLOBALS[x] test $GLOBALS[y]$GLOBALS[z] test ";
