The test labeled "global" was the faster by 0.0217 seconds, (3.696% faster)

global 100%
local 96.304%

The global test took 0.5663 seconds.
The local test took 0.588 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 132,594 loops for a total of 2,651,880 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000008) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.087) milliseconds per 132,594 loops.
  • Total difference 21.74 milliseconds for 2,651,880 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.8482) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.9278) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "global", was:

global $dummy;
for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
	$dummy = $i;

The second test, "local", was:

$dummy = null;
for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
	$dummy = $i;
