Historical Results

Based on (4) saved test runs, The test labeled "global" was (on average) the faster by 0.0104 seconds, (1.548% faster)

global 100%
static 98.452%

The global test took 0.6643 seconds.
The static test took 0.6748 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 179,065 loops for a total of 3,581,295 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 179,065 loops.
  • Total difference 10.44 milliseconds for 3,581,295 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, "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);
