Result: Discarded

The test labeled "require" was the faster by 0.0018 seconds, (0.338% faster)

require 100%
include 99.662%

The require test took 0.5394 seconds.
The include test took 0.5412 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 129,523 loops for a total of 2,590,460 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.092) milliseconds per 129,523 loops.
  • Total difference 1.83 milliseconds for 2,590,460 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.5175) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.9907) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "include", was:


The second test, "require", was:
