The test labeled "callback" was the faster by 0.0103 seconds, (1.365% faster)

callback 100%
wrapped 98.635%

The callback test took 0.7438 seconds.
The wrapped test took 0.754 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 190,997 loops for a total of 3,819,940 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.514) milliseconds per 190,997 loops.
  • Total difference 10.29 milliseconds for 3,819,940 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.8921) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.7990) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "callback", was:

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

The second test, "wrapped", was:

/*
function do_something($type)
{
	if ($type === 'do_something1')
		do_something1();
	else
		do_something2();
}
*/

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