No Description

Run this test again Return to test menu

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "$k => $dummy" was the faster by 0.0393 seconds, (3.632% faster)

$k => $dummy 100%
array_keys() 96.368%

The $k => $dummy test took 1.0421 seconds.
The array_keys() test took 1.0813 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 295,373 loops for a total of 5,907,460 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000007) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.964) milliseconds per 295,373 loops.
  • Total difference 39.27 milliseconds for 5,907,460 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.5469) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.1069) 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;
