No Description

Run this test again Return to test menu

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "with key" was the faster by 0.0215 seconds, (1.987% faster)

with key 100%
without key 98.013%

The with key test took 1.0616 seconds.
The without key test took 1.0831 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 249,104 loops for a total of 4,982,080 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.076) milliseconds per 249,104 loops.
  • Total difference 21.52 milliseconds for 4,982,080 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (9.3479) milliseconds and Code 2 was (9.8002) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "with key", was:

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

The second test, "without key", was:

foreach ($GLOBALS['dummy'] as $v)
	$v + array(1);
