Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "is_int" was the faster by 0.0679 seconds, (11.122% faster)
The is_int test took 0.5423 seconds.
The Casting test took 0.6102 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 146,359 loops for a total of 2,927,180 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000023) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (3.393) milliseconds per 146,359 loops.
- Total difference 67.87 milliseconds for 2,927,180 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.7723) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.4754) 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'];
