No Description

Run this test again Return to test menu

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "commas" was the faster by 0.0398 seconds, (3.739% faster)

commas 100%
sprintf() 96.261%

The commas test took 1.024 seconds.
The sprintf() test took 1.0638 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 283,782 loops for a total of 5,675,640 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000007) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.989) milliseconds per 283,782 loops.
  • Total difference 39.77 milliseconds for 5,675,640 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.2956) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.6822) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "commas", was:

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

The second test, "sprintf()", was:

echo sprintf('%s test %s%s test ', $GLOBALS['x'], $GLOBALS['y'], $GLOBALS['z']);
