The test labeled "include" was the faster by 0.0755 seconds, (11.369% faster)

include 100%
eval() 88.631%

The include test took 0.5887 seconds.
The eval() test took 0.6642 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 135,518 loops for a total of 2,710,360 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000028) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (3.775) milliseconds per 135,518 loops.
  • Total difference 75.51 milliseconds for 2,710,360 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (5.2384) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.9931) 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/'));
