The test labeled "@ (shut up)" was the faster by 0.0942 seconds, (6.132% faster)

@ (shut up) 100%
error_reporting(0) 93.868%

The @ (shut up) test took 1.4418 seconds.
The error_reporting(0) test took 1.536 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 284,600 loops for a total of 5,692,000 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000017) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (4.710) milliseconds per 284,600 loops.
  • Total difference 94.20 milliseconds for 5,692,000 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (12.1889) milliseconds and Code 2 was (12.2760) 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);
