The <?php ?> test took 0.7112 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 165,979 loops for a total of 3,319,580 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.734) milliseconds per 165,979 loops.
  • Total difference 14.67 milliseconds for 3,319,580 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.3899) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.8009) 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
}
