Historical Results

Based on (6) saved test runs, The test labeled "if" was (on average) the faster by 0.0005 seconds, (0.064% faster)

if 100%
callback 99.936%

The if test took 0.8245 seconds.
The callback test took 0.825 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 212,917 loops for a total of 4,258,330 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000000) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 212,917 loops.
  • Total difference 0.53 milliseconds for 4,258,330 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) 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)
