The test labeled "fcall" was the faster by 0.0119 seconds, (1.988% faster)

fcall 100%
call_user_func_array() 98.012%

The fcall test took 0.5847 seconds.
The call_user_func_array() test took 0.5966 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 131,205 loops for a total of 2,624,100 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.593) milliseconds per 131,205 loops.
  • Total difference 11.86 milliseconds for 2,624,100 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.3359) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.2351) 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));
