Result: Discarded

The test labeled "commas" was the faster by 0.0209 seconds, (1.718% faster)

commas 100%
interpolation 98.282%

The commas test took 1.1948 seconds.
The interpolation test took 1.2157 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 252,516 loops for a total of 5,050,320 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.044) milliseconds per 252,516 loops.
  • Total difference 20.88 milliseconds for 5,050,320 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (11.8736) milliseconds and Code 2 was (11.1061) 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, "interpolation", was:

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