Historical ResultsBased on (1) saved test runs, The test labeled "file_get_contents()" was (on average) the faster by 0.075 seconds, (5.578% faster)
The file_get_contents() test took 1.2692 seconds.
The file() test took 1.3442 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 275,986 loops for a total of 5,519,720 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000014) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 275,986 loops.
- Total difference 74.98 milliseconds for 5,519,720 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;
