Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "is_float" was the faster by 0.0318 seconds, (2.391% faster)
The is_float test took 1.299 seconds.
The Casting test took 1.3308 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 275,216 loops for a total of 5,504,320 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.591) milliseconds per 275,216 loops.
- Total difference 31.82 milliseconds for 5,504,320 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (9.2719) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.3239) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "is_float", was:
$a = is_string($GLOBALS['test']);
The second test, "Casting", was:
$a = (string) $GLOBALS['test'] === $GLOBALS['test'];
