Historical Results

Based on (2) saved test runs, The test labeled "elseif" was (on average) the faster by 0.022 seconds, (2.081% faster)

elseif 100%
else if 97.919%

The elseif test took 1.035 seconds.
The else if test took 1.057 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 203,059 loops for a total of 4,061,170 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 203,059 loops.
  • Total difference 21.99 milliseconds for 4,061,170 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.


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;
