Result: Discarded

The test labeled "strstr()" was the faster by 0.1617 seconds, (12.392% faster)

strstr() 100%
strpos() 87.608%

The strstr() test took 1.1435 seconds.
The strpos() test took 1.3053 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 259,910 loops for a total of 5,198,200 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000031) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (8.087) milliseconds per 259,910 loops.
  • Total difference 161.75 milliseconds for 5,198,200 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.6990) milliseconds and Code 2 was (8.5521) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

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

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = strstr($GLOBALS['dummy'], '3456') != '';

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

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = strpos($GLOBALS['dummy'], '3456') !== false;
