strtr() 95.955%

The str_replace() test took 1.1401 seconds.
The strtr() test took 1.1882 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 281,780 loops for a total of 5,635,600 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000009) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (2.403) milliseconds per 281,780 loops.
  • Total difference 48.06 milliseconds for 5,635,600 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (10.0619) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.1939) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
