Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "ob_start()" was the faster by 0.0859 seconds, (9.519% faster)
The ob_start() test took 0.8166 seconds.
The concat test took 0.9025 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 185,383 loops for a total of 3,707,660 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000023) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (4.296) milliseconds per 185,383 loops.
- Total difference 85.92 milliseconds for 3,707,660 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.0477) milliseconds and Code 2 was (8.6146) 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;
