But unfortunately, if you compare two strings in PHP, you first need to determine if the strings...
We can hope that companies like Intel® will come along with a faster processor. (And this does tend to happen every year). Or we can improve our compilers to produce better machine code. Or we can analyze our own code and change it to run more optimally. For PHP, we do all three: We partner with the processor architects to improve the way they execute PHP; we look for changes we can make to the...
