Historical ResultsBased on (3) saved test runs, The test labeled "file()" was (on average) the faster by 0.0223 seconds, (2.683% faster)
The file() test took 0.8078 seconds.
The file_get_contents() test took 0.8301 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 220,286 loops for a total of 4,405,727 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 220,286 loops.
- Total difference 22.27 milliseconds for 4,405,727 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "file()", was:
$lines = file('supplement/dummy.inc'); foreach ($lines as $line) $GLOBALS['dummy2'] = rtrim($line);
The second test, "file_get_contents()", was:
$lines = explode("\n", str_replace(array("\r\n", "\r"), "\n", file_get_contents('supplement/dummy.inc'))); foreach ($lines as $line) $GLOBALS['dummy2'] = $line;
