Historical Results

Based on (1) saved test runs, The test labeled "include" was (on average) the faster by 0.0366 seconds, (4.234% faster)

include 100%
eval() 95.766%

The include test took 0.8273 seconds.
The eval() test took 0.8639 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 212,531 loops for a total of 4,250,620 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000009) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 212,531 loops.
  • Total difference 36.58 milliseconds for 4,250,620 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.

Code

The first test, "include", was:

clearstatcache();
include('supplement/dummy.inc');

The second test, "eval()", was:

clearstatcache();
eval('?' . '>' . file_get_contents('supplement/dummy.inc'));
