Historical ResultsBased on (3) saved test runs, The test labeled "urlencode()" was (on average) the faster by 0.0129 seconds, (1.512% faster)
The urlencode() test took 0.8376 seconds.
The base64_encode() test took 0.8505 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 198,676 loops for a total of 3,973,513 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 198,676 loops.
- Total difference 12.85 milliseconds for 3,973,513 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, "urlencode()", was:
$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = urlencode($GLOBALS['dummy']);
The second test, "base64_encode()", was:
$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = base64_encode($GLOBALS['dummy']);
