Historical Results

Based on (7) saved test runs, The test labeled "include" was (on average) the faster by 0.002 seconds, (0.271% faster)

include 100%
require 99.729%

The include test took 0.7252 seconds.
The require test took 0.7271 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 194,255 loops for a total of 3,885,103 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 194,255 loops.
  • Total difference 1.97 milliseconds for 3,885,103 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) 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:
