Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "Casting" was the faster by 0.0493 seconds, (7.358% faster)
The Casting test took 0.6203 seconds.
The is_int test took 0.6695 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 151,679 loops for a total of 3,033,580 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000016) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (2.463) milliseconds per 151,679 loops.
- Total difference 49.26 milliseconds for 3,033,580 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.2369) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.2922) 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'];
