The test labeled "include" was the faster by 0.0101 seconds, (1.377% faster)

include 100%
eval() 98.623%

The include test took 0.7201 seconds.
The eval() test took 0.7302 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 166,358 loops for a total of 3,327,160 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.503) milliseconds per 166,358 loops.
  • Total difference 10.05 milliseconds for 3,327,160 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.9669) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.2272) 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/'));
