Result: Discarded

The test labeled "elseif" was the faster by 0.0394 seconds, (7.206% faster)

elseif 100%
else if 92.794%

The elseif test took 0.5074 seconds.
The else if test took 0.5468 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 130,338 loops for a total of 2,606,760 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000015) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.970) milliseconds per 130,338 loops.
  • Total difference 39.40 milliseconds for 2,606,760 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.5764) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.3615) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "else if", was:

if ($GLOBALS['dummy_false'])
	$GLOBALS['dummy_false'] = true;
else if ($GLOBALS['dummy_true'])
	$GLOBALS['dummy_true'] = true;

The second test, "elseif", was:

if ($GLOBALS['dummy_false'])
	$GLOBALS['dummy_false'] = true;
elseif ($GLOBALS['dummy_true'])
	$GLOBALS['dummy_true'] = true;
