The <?php ?> test took 0.9247 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 232,701 loops for a total of 4,654,020 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 232,701 loops.
  • Total difference 4.32 milliseconds for 4,654,020 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) 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
}
