The test labeled "strstr()" was the faster by 0.0191 seconds, (1.785% faster)

strstr() 100%
strpos() 98.215%

The strstr() test took 1.0501 seconds.
The strpos() test took 1.0692 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 269,556 loops for a total of 5,391,120 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000004) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.954) milliseconds per 269,556 loops.
  • Total difference 19.08 milliseconds for 5,391,120 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.1521) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.2000) 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;
