Result: SavedThe test labeled "is_float" was the faster by 0.0122 seconds, (1.158% faster)
The is_float test took 1.0393 seconds.
The Casting test took 1.0515 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 293,718 loops for a total of 5,874,360 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.609) milliseconds per 293,718 loops.
- Total difference 12.18 milliseconds for 5,874,360 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.2179) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.1739) 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'];
