Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "concat" was the faster by 0.1462 seconds, (8.218% faster)
The concat test took 1.6333 seconds.
The ob_start() test took 1.7795 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 291,828 loops for a total of 5,836,560 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000025) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (7.312) milliseconds per 291,828 loops.
- Total difference 146.25 milliseconds for 5,836,560 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (16.7418) milliseconds and Code 2 was (20.3883) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "ob_start()", was:
ob_start(); for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++) echo 'Wheat Thins!'; $GLOBALS['dummy'] = ob_get_contents(); ob_end_clean();
The second test, "concat", was:
$value = ''; for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++) $value .= 'Wheat Thins!'; $GLOBALS['dummy'] = $value;
