Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "concat" was the faster by 0.042 seconds, (3.505% faster)
The concat test took 1.1555 seconds.
The ob_start() test took 1.1974 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 279,620 loops for a total of 5,592,400 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000008) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (2.099) milliseconds per 279,620 loops.
- Total difference 41.98 milliseconds for 5,592,400 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.9147) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.5670) 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;
