Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "Casting" was the faster by 0.0095 seconds, (1.096% faster)
The Casting test took 0.8583 seconds.
The is_int test took 0.8678 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 208,594 loops for a total of 4,171,880 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.475) milliseconds per 208,594 loops.
- Total difference 9.51 milliseconds for 4,171,880 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.0514) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.4816) 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'];
