The test labeled "include" was the faster by 0.0033 seconds, (0.615% faster)

include 100%
require 99.385%

The include test took 0.5296 seconds.
The require test took 0.5329 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 123,680 loops for a total of 2,473,600 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.164) milliseconds per 123,680 loops.
  • Total difference 3.28 milliseconds for 2,473,600 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.9029) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.1386) 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:
