The test labeled "$k => $dummy" was the faster by 0.0167 seconds, (1.436% faster)

$k => $dummy 100%
array_keys() 98.564%

The $k => $dummy test took 1.1439 seconds.
The array_keys() test took 1.1606 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 269,686 loops for a total of 5,393,720 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.833) milliseconds per 269,686 loops.
  • Total difference 16.66 milliseconds for 5,393,720 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.6331) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.7618) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "$k => $dummy", was:

foreach ($GLOBALS['dummy'] as $k => $dummy)
	$k + 1;

The second test, "array_keys()", was:

foreach (array_keys($GLOBALS['dummy']) as $k)
	$k + 1;
