Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "urlencode()" was the faster by 0.0033 seconds, (0.515% faster)
The urlencode() test took 0.6317 seconds.
The base64_encode() test took 0.6349 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 148,628 loops for a total of 2,972,560 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.164) milliseconds per 148,628 loops.
- Total difference 3.27 milliseconds for 2,972,560 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (4.1823) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.1085) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "urlencode()", was:
$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = urlencode($GLOBALS['dummy']);
The second test, "base64_encode()", was:
$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = base64_encode($GLOBALS['dummy']);
