Historical Results

Based on (7) saved test runs, The test labeled "===" was (on average) the faster by 0.0093 seconds, (0.927% faster)

=== 100%
strcmp() 99.073%

The === test took 0.9916 seconds.
The strcmp() test took 1.0008 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 248,962 loops for a total of 4,979,249 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 248,962 loops.
  • Total difference 9.28 milliseconds for 4,979,249 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, "===", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy3'] = $GLOBALS['dummy1'] === $GLOBALS['dummy2'];

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

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy3'] = strcmp($GLOBALS['dummy1'], $GLOBALS['dummy2']) == 0;
