Historical Results

Based on (3) saved test runs, The test labeled "more" was (on average) the faster by 0.0095 seconds, (1.192% faster)

more 100%
less 98.808%

The more test took 0.7917 seconds.
The less test took 0.8013 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 216,670 loops for a total of 4,333,407 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 216,670 loops.
  • Total difference 9.55 milliseconds for 4,333,407 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);
