Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "is_int" was the faster by 0.031 seconds, (2.946% faster)
The is_int test took 1.0203 seconds.
The Casting test took 1.0513 seconds.
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.
The first test, "is_int", was:
$a = is_int($GLOBALS['test']);
The second test, "Casting", was:
$a = (int) $GLOBALS['test'] === $GLOBALS['test'];
