Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "Casting" was the faster by 0.0146 seconds, (1.747% faster)
The Casting test took 0.82 seconds.
The is_int test took 0.8346 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 129,814 loops for a total of 2,596,280 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.729) milliseconds per 129,814 loops.
- Total difference 14.58 milliseconds for 2,596,280 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.9200) milliseconds and Code 2 was (8.3433) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "is_int", was:
$a = is_int($GLOBALS['test']);
The second test, "Casting", was:
$a = (int) $GLOBALS['test'] === $GLOBALS['test'];
