Result: Discarded

The test labeled "static" was the faster by 0.0077 seconds, (1.334% faster)

static 100%
global 98.666%

The static test took 0.5664 seconds.
The global test took 0.574 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 143,751 loops for a total of 2,875,020 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.383) milliseconds per 143,751 loops.
  • Total difference 7.66 milliseconds for 2,875,020 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.2641) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.8714) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "global", was:

/*
function foo_global($i)
{
	global $dummy;

	$dummy = $i;
}
*/

for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
	foo_global($i);

The second test, "static", was:

/*
function foo_static($i)
{
	static $dummy = null;

	$dummy = $i;
}
*/

for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++)
	foo_static($i);
