call_user_func_array() 98.633%

The fcall test took 0.8149 seconds.
The call_user_func_array() test took 0.8262 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 219,755 loops for a total of 4,395,098 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 219,755 loops.
  • Total difference 11.29 milliseconds for 4,395,098 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($i)
{
	for ($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));
