Result: SavedThe test labeled "preg_replace()" was the faster by 0.0059 seconds, (0.922% faster)
The preg_replace() test took 0.6361 seconds.
The stri_replace() test took 0.642 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 149,011 loops for a total of 2,980,220 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.296) milliseconds per 149,011 loops.
- Total difference 5.92 milliseconds for 2,980,220 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.7979) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.8037) 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']);
