The test labeled "include" was the faster by 0.1006 seconds, (7.991% faster)

include 100%
require 92.009%

The include test took 1.158 seconds.
The require test took 1.2586 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 277,630 loops for a total of 5,552,600 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000018) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (5.029) milliseconds per 277,630 loops.
  • Total difference 100.57 milliseconds for 5,552,600 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.4128) milliseconds and Code 2 was (11.7899) 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:
