Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "preg_replace()" was the faster by 0.0279 seconds, (4.365% faster)
The preg_replace() test took 0.6105 seconds.
The stri_replace() test took 0.6383 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 162,271 loops for a total of 3,245,420 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000009) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.393) milliseconds per 162,271 loops.
- Total difference 27.87 milliseconds for 3,245,420 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.8000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.4189) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "preg_replace()", was:
$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = preg_replace('~(Wheat|Thins)~i', 'Nilla', $GLOBALS['dummy']);
The second test, "stri_replace()", was:
$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = str_ireplace(array('Wheat', 'Thins'), 'Nilla', $GLOBALS['dummy']);
