Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "base64_encode()" was the faster by 0.0066 seconds, (0.568% faster)
The base64_encode() test took 1.1627 seconds.
The urlencode() test took 1.1694 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 290,162 loops for a total of 5,803,240 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000001) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.332) milliseconds per 290,162 loops.
- Total difference 6.64 milliseconds for 5,803,240 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (9.3607) milliseconds and Code 2 was (7.2017) 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']);
