Historical Results

Based on (1) saved test runs, The test labeled "more" was (on average) the faster by 0.0227 seconds, (2.019% faster)

more 100%
less 97.981%

The more test took 1.0998 seconds.
The less test took 1.1224 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 292,489 loops for a total of 5,849,780 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 292,489 loops.
  • Total difference 22.66 milliseconds for 5,849,780 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);
