Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "preg_match()" was the faster by 0.0243 seconds, (2.095% faster)
The preg_match() test took 1.136 seconds.
The strpos() test took 1.1603 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 287,084 loops for a total of 5,741,680 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.215) milliseconds per 287,084 loops.
- Total difference 24.31 milliseconds for 5,741,680 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (7.7996) milliseconds and Code 2 was (7.2124) 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;
