The test labeled "eval()" was the faster by 0.0326 seconds, (2.821% faster)

eval() 100%
include 97.179%

The eval() test took 1.1245 seconds.
The include test took 1.1571 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 277,492 loops for a total of 5,549,840 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.632) milliseconds per 277,492 loops.
  • Total difference 32.65 milliseconds for 5,549,840 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (7.2907) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.0943) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "include", was:


The second test, "eval()", was:

eval('?' . '>' . file_get_contents('supplement/'));
