Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 279,573 loops for a total of 5,591,460 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000016) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (4.416) milliseconds per 279,573 loops.
  • Total difference 88.32 milliseconds for 5,591,460 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.3671) milliseconds and Code 2 was (9.5352) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "echo", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	echo 'some text';

The second test, "<?php ?>", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
{
	?>some text<?php
}
