Where is recommended to use one of them? I want to store data from articles listed from db.
It’s a simple question:
echo $Datastore->name; //I like it works with foreach //vs echo $Datastore['name'];
Which is the best? Is there any difference between
array speed of getting elements?
There is a similar question What is better stdClass or (object) array to store related data? with this answer
Based on small test (http://phpfiddle.org/lite/code/cz0-hyf) I can say
that using “new stdClass()” is about 3 times slowlier than other
It is strange, but casting an array is done very efficiently compared
But this test meters only execution time. It does not meter memory.
P.S. I used phpFiddle only to share code. Test were done at my local
In answer to another similar question you can see this conclusion:
- For arrays, PHP 5.5 is faster than PHP 5.4, for object it is pretty much the same
- Class is slower than Arrays thanks to the optimization of PHP 5.5 and arrays.
- stdClass is evil.
- Class still uses less memory than Arrays. (about 30-40% less!!).
- SplFixedArray is similar to use a Class but it uses more memory.
