Result: Discarded

The test labeled "fcall" was the faster by 0.021 seconds, (3.997% faster)

fcall 100%
call_user_func_array() 96.003%

The fcall test took 0.5039 seconds.
The call_user_func_array() test took 0.5249 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 137,563 loops for a total of 2,751,260 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000008) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.049) milliseconds per 137,563 loops.
  • Total difference 20.98 milliseconds for 2,751,260 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.7669) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.3258) 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));
