Historical Results

Based on (5) saved test runs, The test labeled "short" was (on average) the faster by 0.0069 seconds, (0.725% faster)

short 100%
long (x200) 99.275%

The short test took 0.9416 seconds.
The long (x200) test took 0.9485 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 251,916 loops for a total of 5,038,324 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 251,916 loops.
  • Total difference 6.88 milliseconds for 5,038,324 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.

Code

The first test, "short", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = substr($GLOBALS['dummy_short'], 10, 10);

The second test, "long (x200)", was:

for ($j = 0; $j < 100; $j++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = substr($GLOBALS['dummy_long'], 10, 10);
