Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 123,389 loops for a total of 2,467,780 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.597) milliseconds per 123,389 loops.
  • Total difference 11.94 milliseconds for 2,467,780 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.5625) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.5293) 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
}
