Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "preg_match()" was the faster by 0.0516 seconds, (4.595% faster)
The preg_match() test took 1.0722 seconds.
The strpos() test took 1.1239 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 290,917 loops for a total of 5,818,340 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000009) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (2.582) milliseconds per 290,917 loops.
- Total difference 51.64 milliseconds for 5,818,340 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.8934) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.7812) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "preg_match()", was:
if (preg_match('~http://www\.google\.com/~', $GLOBALS['dummy']) != 0) $GLOBALS['dummy2'] = 42;
The second test, "strpos()", was:
if (strpos($GLOBALS['dummy'], 'http://wwww.google.com/') !== false) $GLOBALS['dummy2'] = 42;
