The test labeled "include" was the faster by 0.0099 seconds, (1.706% faster)

include 100%
require 98.294%

The include test took 0.5696 seconds.
The require test took 0.5795 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 125,907 loops for a total of 2,518,140 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.494) milliseconds per 125,907 loops.
  • Total difference 9.89 milliseconds for 2,518,140 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.4478) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.2823) 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:
