Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "stri_replace()" was the faster by 0.0348 seconds, (3.080% faster)
The stri_replace() test took 1.0959 seconds.
The preg_replace() test took 1.1308 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 279,247 loops for a total of 5,584,940 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.741) milliseconds per 279,247 loops.
- Total difference 34.83 milliseconds for 5,584,940 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (7.9411) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.6252) 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']);
