Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "preg_replace()" was the faster by 0.0113 seconds, (1.043% faster)
The preg_replace() test took 1.0681 seconds.
The stri_replace() test took 1.0794 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 283,926 loops for a total of 5,678,520 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.563) milliseconds per 283,926 loops.
- Total difference 11.25 milliseconds for 5,678,520 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.4886) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.4407) 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']);
