'require()' is used instead of 'import'

Reports a require() statement. Suggests converting it to a require() call with an import statement.

Enable 'Convert require() inside inner scopes with Fix all action' to convert all require() calls inside the nested functions and statements when using the 'Fix all' action.

Please note that converting require() statements inside inner scopes to import statements may cause changes in the semantics of the code. Import statements are static module dependencies and are hoisted, which means that they are moved to the top of the current module. require() calls load modules dynamically. They can be executed conditionally, and their scope is defined by the expression in which they are used.

Clear the 'Convert require() inside inner scopes with Fix all action' checkbox to prevent any changes in these complex cases when using the 'Fix all' action.
