Historical Results

Based on (1) saved test runs, The test labeled "include" was (on average) the faster by 0.0163 seconds, (1.576% faster)

include 100%
require 98.424%

The include test took 1.0208 seconds.
The require test took 1.0371 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 291,321 loops for a total of 5,826,420 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 291,321 loops.
  • Total difference 16.35 milliseconds for 5,826,420 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:
