Result: Discarded

The test labeled "callback" was the faster by 0.0244 seconds, (2.204% faster)

callback 100%
if 97.796%

The callback test took 1.0843 seconds.
The if test took 1.1088 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 285,181 loops for a total of 5,703,620 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.222) milliseconds per 285,181 loops.
  • Total difference 24.44 milliseconds for 5,703,620 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (5.3450) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.1291) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "callback", was:

if ($GLOBALS['dummy'] === 41)
	$cb = 'do_something1';
	$cb = 'do_something2';

The second test, "if", was:

$v = 'do_something1';
if ($GLOBALS['dummy'] === 41)
