Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 200,420 loops for a total of 4,008,400 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000018) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (3.529) milliseconds per 200,420 loops.
  • Total difference 70.57 milliseconds for 4,008,400 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.5213) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.0526) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

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

strtr($GLOBALS['dummy'], array('string' => 'STRING!'));

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

str_replace('string', 'STRING!', $GLOBALS['dummy']);
