Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "file_exists()" was the faster by 0.0512 seconds, (4.964% faster)
The file_exists() test took 0.9809 seconds.
The require test took 1.0321 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 244,032 loops for a total of 4,880,640 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000010) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (2.562) milliseconds per 244,032 loops.
- Total difference 51.23 milliseconds for 4,880,640 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.4153) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.9056) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "file_exists()", was:
clearstatcache(); if (!file_exists('supplement/dummy.inc')) trigger_error('Required file not found!', E_USER_ERROR); include('supplement/dummy.inc');
The second test, "require", was:
