Historical Results

Based on (1) saved test runs, The test labeled "not" was (on average) the faster by 0.0143 seconds, (1.724% faster)

not 100%
ob_start() 98.276%

The not test took 0.8181 seconds.
The ob_start() test took 0.8325 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 130,775 loops for a total of 2,615,500 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 130,775 loops.
  • Total difference 14.35 milliseconds for 2,615,500 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

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

ob_start();

for ($i = 0; $i < 20; $i++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = $i * 2;

ob_end_clean();

The second test, "not", was:

for ($i = 0; $i < 20; $i++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = $i * 2;
