The notices test took 0.9985 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 194,653 loops for a total of 3,893,060 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000009) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.767) milliseconds per 194,653 loops.
  • Total difference 35.34 milliseconds for 3,893,060 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (8.0725) milliseconds and Code 2 was (10.9483) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "notices", was:

for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
	$GLOBALS[dummy]++;

The second test, "clean code", was:

for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy']++;
