The test labeled "strtr()" was the faster by 0.018 seconds, (1.704% faster)

strtr() 100%
str_replace() 98.296%

The strtr() test took 1.0356 seconds.
The str_replace() test took 1.0536 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 281,261 loops for a total of 5,625,220 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.898) milliseconds per 281,261 loops.
  • Total difference 17.96 milliseconds for 5,625,220 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.5492) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.6001) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "strtr()", was:
