Historical Results

Based on (3) saved test runs, The test labeled "no fcall" was (on average) the faster by 0.0047 seconds, (0.525% faster)

no fcall 100%
fcall 99.475%

The no fcall test took 0.8953 seconds.
The fcall test took 0.9 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 236,389 loops for a total of 4,727,780 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 236,389 loops.
  • Total difference 4.73 milliseconds for 4,727,780 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;
