Historical Results

Based on (4) saved test runs, The test labeled "no fcall" was (on average) the faster by 0.0001 seconds, (0.010% faster)

no fcall 100%
fcall 99.99%

The no fcall test took 0.7703 seconds.
The fcall test took 0.7703 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 166,185 loops for a total of 3,323,690 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000000) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 166,185 loops.
  • Total difference 0.07 milliseconds for 3,323,690 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;
