Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "stri_replace()" was the faster by 0.0231 seconds, (3.580% faster)
The stri_replace() test took 0.6221 seconds.
The preg_replace() test took 0.6452 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 129,364 loops for a total of 2,587,280 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000009) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.155) milliseconds per 129,364 loops.
- Total difference 23.10 milliseconds for 2,587,280 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.1678) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.4423) 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']);
