Result: Discarded

The test labeled "call_user_func()" was the faster by 0.0084 seconds, (1.580% faster)

call_user_func() 100%
fcall 98.42%

The call_user_func() test took 0.5259 seconds.
The fcall test took 0.5343 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 134,357 loops for a total of 2,687,140 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.422) milliseconds per 134,357 loops.
  • Total difference 8.44 milliseconds for 2,687,140 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.3844) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.7503) 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($i)
{
	for ($i = 0; $i < 20; $i++)
		$GLOBALS['dummy'] + $i;
}
*/

do_something(74);

The second test, "call_user_func()", was:

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

call_user_func('do_something', 74);
