Historical ResultsBased on (5) saved test runs, The test labeled "file()" was (on average) the faster by 0.0164 seconds, (1.930% faster)
The file() test took 0.8341 seconds.
The file_get_contents() test took 0.8505 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 183,218 loops for a total of 3,664,360 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 183,218 loops.
- Total difference 16.42 milliseconds for 3,664,360 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;
