Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "urlencode()" was the faster by 0.0198 seconds, (1.896% faster)
The urlencode() test took 1.0262 seconds.
The base64_encode() test took 1.0461 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 289,862 loops for a total of 5,797,240 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.992) milliseconds per 289,862 loops.
- Total difference 19.83 milliseconds for 5,797,240 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.5132) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.9140) 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']);
