Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 196,454 loops for a total of 3,929,080 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.659) milliseconds per 196,454 loops.
  • Total difference 13.18 milliseconds for 3,929,080 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (8.5062) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.5209) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "echo", was:

echo $GLOBALS['x'], ' test ', $GLOBALS['y'], $GLOBALS['z'], ' test ';
