Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 112,500 loops for a total of 2,250,000 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.306) milliseconds per 112,500 loops.
  • Total difference 6.12 milliseconds for 2,250,000 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.6215) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.7176) 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 ';

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

echo $GLOBALS['x']; ?> test <?php echo $GLOBALS['y'], $GLOBALS['z'];?> test <?php
