Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 251,985 loops for a total of 5,039,700 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.685) milliseconds per 251,985 loops.
  • Total difference 13.70 milliseconds for 5,039,700 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.0416) milliseconds and Code 2 was (2.4034) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "strpos()/strtolower()", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 40; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy'] = strpos(strtolower($GLOBALS['dummy_match']), '9abcd') === 5;
for ($j = 0; $j < 40; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy'] = strpos(strtolower($GLOBALS['dummy_fail']), '9abcd') === 5;

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

for ($j = 0; $j < 40; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy'] = stripos($GLOBALS['dummy_match'], '9abcd') === 5;
for ($j = 0; $j < 40; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy'] = stripos($GLOBALS['dummy_fail'], '9abcd') === 5;
