Historical Results

Based on (3) saved test runs, The test labeled "fcall" was (on average) the faster by 0.0313 seconds, (3.866% faster)

fcall 100%
no fcall 96.134%

The fcall test took 0.7789 seconds.
The no fcall test took 0.8102 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 202,777 loops for a total of 4,055,547 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000008) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 202,777 loops.
  • Total difference 31.32 milliseconds for 4,055,547 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.

Code

The first test, "fcall", was:

/*
function do_something()
{
	for ($i = 0; $i < 20; $i++)
		$GLOBALS['dummy'] + $i;
}
*/

do_something();

The second test, "no fcall", was:

for ($i = 0; $i < 20; $i++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy'] + $i;
