Historical Results

Based on (2) saved test runs, The test labeled "include" was (on average) the faster by 0.0291 seconds, (3.905% faster)

include 100%
require 96.095%

The include test took 0.7173 seconds.
The require test took 0.7464 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 154,418 loops for a total of 3,088,350 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000009) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 154,418 loops.
  • Total difference 29.15 milliseconds for 3,088,350 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:
