Result: Discarded

The test labeled "if" was the faster by 0.1062 seconds, (6.500% faster)

if 100%
callback 93.5%

The if test took 1.5275 seconds.
The callback test took 1.6337 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 288,764 loops for a total of 5,775,280 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000018) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (5.310) milliseconds per 288,764 loops.
  • Total difference 106.19 milliseconds for 5,775,280 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (30.6825) milliseconds and Code 2 was (27.8896) 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)
