call_user_func_array() 100%
fcall 97.294%

The call_user_func_array() test took 0.8786 seconds.
The fcall test took 0.903 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 211,459 loops for a total of 4,229,180 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.222) milliseconds per 211,459 loops.
  • Total difference 24.44 milliseconds for 4,229,180 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.1613) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.7001) 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_array()", was:

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

call_user_func_array('do_something', array(74));
