Solution:

Follow this below program to solve this issue

Code:

function timeFunc($function, $runs)
{
  $times = array();

  for ($i = 0; $i < $runs; $i++)
  {
    $time = microtime();
    call_user_func($function);
    $times[$i] = microtime() - $time;
  }

  return array_sum($times) / $runs;
}

function Method1()
{ 
  $foo = 'some words';
  for ($i = 0; $i < 10000; $i++)
    $t = "these are $foo";
}

function Method2()
{
  $foo = 'some words';
  for ($i = 0; $i < 10000; $i++)
    $t = "these are {$foo}";
}

function Method3()
 {
  $foo = 'some words';
  for ($i = 0; $i < 10000; $i++)
    $t = "these are " . $foo;
}

print timeFunc('Method1', 10) . "\n";
print timeFunc('Method2', 10) . "\n";
print timeFunc('Method3', 10) . "\n";

You will get this output:

0.0035568

0.0035388

0.0025394

You can included Method4() to above real time logic:

function Method4()
 {
  $foo = 'some words';
  for ($i = 0; $i < 10000; $i++)
    $t = 'these are ' . $foo;
}

print timeFunc('Method4', 10) . "\n";

Results were:

0.0014739
0.0015574
0.0011955
0.001169

At the time you are only declaring a string just and no require to parse that string too, then why to confuse PHP debugger to parse. Hopefully you got my point.

"these are " . $foo

Keep in mind that the following is even faster:

'these are ' . $foo;

Hopefully, now you are able to solve this problem.
