Result: Discarded

The test labeled "require" was the faster by 0.0079 seconds, (1.420% faster)

require 100%
include 98.58%

The require test took 0.5462 seconds.
The include test took 0.554 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 132,752 loops for a total of 2,655,040 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.393) milliseconds per 132,752 loops.
  • Total difference 7.87 milliseconds for 2,655,040 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.5246) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.2329) 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:
