Historical Results

Based on (4) saved test runs, The test labeled "more" was (on average) the faster by 0.0247 seconds, (2.438% faster)

more 100%
less 97.562%

The more test took 0.9891 seconds.
The less test took 1.0138 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 250,544 loops for a total of 5,010,885 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 250,544 loops.
  • Total difference 24.72 milliseconds for 5,010,885 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) 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);
