The test labeled "require" was the faster by 0.0222 seconds, (1.925% faster)

require 100%
include 98.075%

The require test took 1.1328 seconds.
The include test took 1.155 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 281,733 loops for a total of 5,634,660 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.112) milliseconds per 281,733 loops.
  • Total difference 22.23 milliseconds for 5,634,660 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (11.8127) milliseconds and Code 2 was (8.3143) 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:
