Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 285,569 loops for a total of 5,711,380 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.548) milliseconds per 285,569 loops.
  • Total difference 30.97 milliseconds for 5,711,380 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.7666) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.1809) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "is_int", was:

$a = is_int($GLOBALS['test']);

The second test, "Casting", was:

$a = (int) $GLOBALS['test'] === $GLOBALS['test'];
