Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "Casting" was the faster by 0.0767 seconds, (8.057% faster)
The Casting test took 0.8749 seconds.
The is_int test took 0.9515 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 235,139 loops for a total of 4,702,780 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000016) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (3.833) milliseconds per 235,139 loops.
- Total difference 76.66 milliseconds for 4,702,780 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.9733) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.7562) 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'];
