Result: Discarded

The test labeled "$k => $dummy" was the faster by 0.0314 seconds, (2.563% faster)

$k => $dummy 100%
array_keys() 97.437%

The $k => $dummy test took 1.1927 seconds.
The array_keys() test took 1.224 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 281,402 loops for a total of 5,628,040 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.569) milliseconds per 281,402 loops.
  • Total difference 31.38 milliseconds for 5,628,040 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (7.1500) milliseconds and Code 2 was (7.6617) 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;
