The test labeled "include" was the faster by 0.0276 seconds, (3.193% faster)

include 100%
eval() 96.807%

The include test took 0.8381 seconds.
The eval() test took 0.8657 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 238,245 loops for a total of 4,764,900 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.382) milliseconds per 238,245 loops.
  • Total difference 27.64 milliseconds for 4,764,900 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.7427) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.3603) 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/'));
