The test labeled "include" was the faster by 0.0287 seconds, (2.936% faster)

include 100%
require 97.064%

The include test took 0.9491 seconds.
The require test took 0.9779 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 273,869 loops for a total of 5,477,380 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.435) milliseconds per 273,869 loops.
  • Total difference 28.71 milliseconds for 5,477,380 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.5058) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.5880) 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:
