Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "preg_match()" was the faster by 0.0699 seconds, (6.152% faster)
The preg_match() test took 1.066 seconds.
The strpos() test took 1.1359 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 213,450 loops for a total of 4,269,000 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000016) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (3.494) milliseconds per 213,450 loops.
- Total difference 69.88 milliseconds for 4,269,000 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (5.9304) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.3640) 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;
