Result: Discarded

The test labeled "@ (shut up)" was the faster by 0.0238 seconds, (3.010% faster)

@ (shut up) 100%
error_reporting(0) 96.99%

The @ (shut up) test took 0.7674 seconds.
The error_reporting(0) test took 0.7912 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 146,820 loops for a total of 2,936,400 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000008) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.191) milliseconds per 146,820 loops.
  • Total difference 23.81 milliseconds for 2,936,400 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (5.9065) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.7708) 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);
