Result: Discarded

The test labeled "stripos()" was the faster by 0.0034 seconds, (0.359% faster)

stripos() 100%
strtolower(strpos()) 99.641%

The stripos() test took 0.9523 seconds.
The strtolower(strpos()) test took 0.9557 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 205,100 loops for a total of 4,102,000 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.172) milliseconds per 205,100 loops.
  • Total difference 3.43 milliseconds for 4,102,000 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.5679) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.2620) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "stripos()", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = stripos($GLOBALS['dummy'], 'xyz') != '';

The second test, "strtolower(strpos())", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = strtolower(strpos($GLOBALS['dummy'], 24, 4) == 'xyz');
