Result: Discarded

The test labeled "if" was the faster by 0.103 seconds, (9.368% faster)

if 100%
callback 90.632%

The if test took 0.9967 seconds.
The callback test took 1.0997 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 265,294 loops for a total of 5,305,880 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000019) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (5.151) milliseconds per 265,294 loops.
  • Total difference 103.03 milliseconds for 5,305,880 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (10.1020) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.1792) 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)
