No Description

Run this test again Return to test menu

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "callback" was the faster by 0.0071 seconds, (0.657% faster)

callback 100%
fcall 99.343%

The callback test took 1.0731 seconds.
The fcall test took 1.0802 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 290,012 loops for a total of 5,800,240 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.355) milliseconds per 290,012 loops.
  • Total difference 7.10 milliseconds for 5,800,240 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.6949) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.3571) 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, "callback", was:

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

$GLOBALS['do_something_cb'](74);
