Result: Discarded

The test labeled "commas" was the faster by 0.1302 seconds, (11.451% faster)

commas 100%
interpolation 88.549%

The commas test took 1.0068 seconds.
The interpolation test took 1.137 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 205,326 loops for a total of 4,106,520 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000032) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (6.510) milliseconds per 205,326 loops.
  • Total difference 130.20 milliseconds for 4,106,520 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.2073) milliseconds and Code 2 was (7.9984) 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 ";
