Result: Discarded

The test labeled "less" was the faster by 0.0603 seconds, (9.040% faster)

less 100%
more 90.96%

The less test took 0.6066 seconds.
The more test took 0.6669 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 130,227 loops for a total of 2,604,540 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000023) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (3.014) milliseconds per 130,227 loops.
  • Total difference 60.29 milliseconds for 2,604,540 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.8891) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.4136) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "more", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy'] = rand(0, 16384);

The second test, "less", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy'] = rand(0, 32);
