Result: Discarded

The test labeled "if" was the faster by 0.0046 seconds, (0.438% faster)

if 100%
callback 99.562%

The if test took 1.0416 seconds.
The callback test took 1.0462 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 246,506 loops for a total of 4,930,120 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.229) milliseconds per 246,506 loops.
  • Total difference 4.58 milliseconds for 4,930,120 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (4.7125) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.4338) 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)
