Result: Discarded

The test labeled "error_reporting(0)" was the faster by 0.0015 seconds, (0.355% faster)

error_reporting(0) 100%
@ (shut up) 99.645%

The error_reporting(0) test took 0.4333 seconds.
The @ (shut up) test took 0.4348 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 120,474 loops for a total of 2,409,480 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.077) milliseconds per 120,474 loops.
  • Total difference 1.54 milliseconds for 2,409,480 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.6315) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.3039) 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);
