Result: Discarded

The test labeled "strtr()" was the faster by 0.0144 seconds, (1.258% faster)

strtr() 100%
str_replace()/array_keys() 98.742%

The strtr() test took 1.1266 seconds.
The str_replace()/array_keys() test took 1.141 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 291,018 loops for a total of 5,820,360 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.718) milliseconds per 291,018 loops.
  • Total difference 14.35 milliseconds for 5,820,360 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (4.4525) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.7745) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


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

strtr($GLOBALS['dummy'], $GLOBALS['replacements']);

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

str_replace(array_keys($GLOBALS['replacements']), $GLOBALS['replacements'], $GLOBALS['dummy']);
