Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "is_int" was the faster by 0.0126 seconds, (2.023% faster)
The is_int test took 0.6094 seconds.
The Casting test took 0.6219 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 138,186 loops for a total of 2,763,720 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.629) milliseconds per 138,186 loops.
- Total difference 12.58 milliseconds for 2,763,720 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.1474) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.4495) 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'];
