Historical Results

Based on (1) saved test runs, The test labeled "require" was (on average) the faster by 0.0008 seconds, (0.149% faster)

require 100%
include 99.851%

The require test took 0.5069 seconds.
The include test took 0.5077 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 130,126 loops for a total of 2,602,520 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000000) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 130,126 loops.
  • Total difference 0.76 milliseconds for 2,602,520 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:
