Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "preg_replace()" was the faster by 0.0025 seconds, (0.302% faster)
The preg_replace() test took 0.8182 seconds.
The stri_replace() test took 0.8206 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 192,930 loops for a total of 3,858,600 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.124) milliseconds per 192,930 loops.
- Total difference 2.47 milliseconds for 3,858,600 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.8128) milliseconds and Code 2 was (7.1312) 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']);
