@Deprecated annotation without 'replaceWith' argument

Reports deprecated functions and properties that do not have the kotlin.ReplaceWith argument in its kotlin.deprecated annotation and suggests to add one based on their body.

Kotlin provides the ReplaceWith argument to replace deprecated declarations automatically. It is recommended to use the argument to fix deprecation issues in code.


@Deprecated("Use refined() instead.") fun deprecated() = refined() fun refined() = 42

The quick-fix adds the ReplaceWith() argument:

@Deprecated("Use refined() instead.", ReplaceWith("refined()")) fun deprecated() = refined() fun refined() = 42
