The test labeled "include" was the faster by 0.0511 seconds, (7.183% faster)

include 100%
eval() 92.817%

The include test took 0.6599 seconds.
The eval() test took 0.711 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 162,083 loops for a total of 3,241,660 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000016) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (2.554) milliseconds per 162,083 loops.
  • Total difference 51.08 milliseconds for 3,241,660 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.6574) milliseconds and Code 2 was (7.8406) 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/'));
