Result: Discarded

The test labeled "callback" was the faster by 0.0245 seconds, (3.412% faster)

callback 100%
call_user_func() 96.588%

The callback test took 0.6949 seconds.
The call_user_func() test took 0.7194 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 178,026 loops for a total of 3,560,520 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000007) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.227) milliseconds per 178,026 loops.
  • Total difference 24.54 milliseconds for 3,560,520 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.5164) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.0803) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "callback", was:

/*
function do_something($i)
{
	for ($i = 0; $i < 20; $i++)
		$GLOBALS['dummy'] + $i;
}
*/

$cb = 'do_something';
$cb(74);

The second test, "call_user_func()", was:

/*
function do_something($i)
{
	for ($i = 0; $i < 20; $i++)
		$GLOBALS['dummy'] + $i;
}
*/

$cb = 'do_something';
call_user_func($cb, 74);
