Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 146,747 loops for a total of 2,934,940 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 146,747 loops.
- Total difference 6.79 milliseconds for 2,934,940 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "str_ireplace", was:
