The test labeled "include" was the faster by 0.0492 seconds, (7.272% faster)

include 100%
require 92.728%

The include test took 0.6278 seconds.
The require test took 0.677 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 159,676 loops for a total of 3,193,520 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000015) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (2.462) milliseconds per 159,676 loops.
  • Total difference 49.24 milliseconds for 3,193,520 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.4481) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.8989) 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:
