Historical Results

Based on (3) saved test runs, The test labeled "include" was (on average) the faster by 0.0085 seconds, (0.952% faster)

include 100%
require 99.048%

The include test took 0.8832 seconds.
The require test took 0.8917 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 240,626 loops for a total of 4,812,527 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 240,626 loops.
  • Total difference 8.49 milliseconds for 4,812,527 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:
