Historical Results

Based on (5) saved test runs, The test labeled "callback" was (on average) the faster by 0.0188 seconds, (2.217% faster)

callback 100%
call_user_func() 97.783%

The callback test took 0.8299 seconds.
The call_user_func() test took 0.8487 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 214,052 loops for a total of 4,281,044 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 214,052 loops.
  • Total difference 18.82 milliseconds for 4,281,044 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.

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);
