Historical ResultsBased on (3) saved test runs, The test labeled "file()" was (on average) the faster by 0.0294 seconds, (2.994% faster)
The file() test took 0.9526 seconds.
The fgets() test took 0.982 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 261,977 loops for a total of 5,239,540 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 261,977 loops.
- Total difference 29.41 milliseconds for 5,239,540 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, "fgets()", was:
$fp = fopen('supplement/dummy.inc', 'rt'); while (!feof($fp)) $GLOBALS['dummy2'] = rtrim(fgets($fp)); fclose($fp);
