Result: Discarded

The test labeled "include" was the faster by 0.0686 seconds, (6.224% faster)

include 100%
require 93.776%

The include test took 1.0334 seconds.
The require test took 1.102 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 294,285 loops for a total of 5,885,700 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000012) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (3.430) milliseconds per 294,285 loops.
  • Total difference 68.59 milliseconds for 5,885,700 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.6398) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.2230) 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:
