Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "is_int" was the faster by 0.0209 seconds, (3.407% faster)
The is_int test took 0.5939 seconds.
The Casting test took 0.6148 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 98,429 loops for a total of 1,968,580 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000011) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.047) milliseconds per 98,429 loops.
- Total difference 20.95 milliseconds for 1,968,580 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (4.8617) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.6932) 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'];
