Historical Results

Based on (6) saved test runs, The test labeled "include" was (on average) the faster by 0.0339 seconds, (3.641% faster)

include 100%
eval() 96.359%

The include test took 0.8962 seconds.
The eval() test took 0.9301 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 217,067 loops for a total of 4,341,337 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000008) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 217,067 loops.
  • Total difference 33.86 milliseconds for 4,341,337 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) 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/'));
