Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "is_float" was the faster by 0.0053 seconds, (0.677% faster)
The is_float test took 0.7747 seconds.
The Casting test took 0.7799 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 190,477 loops for a total of 3,809,540 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.264) milliseconds per 190,477 loops.
- Total difference 5.28 milliseconds for 3,809,540 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.9758) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.3003) 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'];
