Result: Discarded

The test labeled "error_reporting(0)" was the faster by 0.0335 seconds, (2.764% faster)

error_reporting(0) 100%
@ (shut up) 97.236%

The error_reporting(0) test took 1.1793 seconds.
The @ (shut up) test took 1.2128 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 279,713 loops for a total of 5,594,260 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.676) milliseconds per 279,713 loops.
  • Total difference 33.52 milliseconds for 5,594,260 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.5256) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.9409) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "@ (shut up)", was:

$temp = 0;
$GLOBALS['dummy'] = $temp;

The second test, "error_reporting(0)", was:

$temp = error_reporting(0);
