Historical Results

Based on (1) saved test runs, The test labeled "strtr()" was (on average) the faster by 0.0128 seconds, (2.256% faster)

strtr() 100%
str_replace()/array_keys() 97.744%

The strtr() test took 0.5562 seconds.
The str_replace()/array_keys() test took 0.569 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 138,861 loops for a total of 2,777,220 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 138,861 loops.
  • Total difference 12.84 milliseconds for 2,777,220 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, "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']);
