Floating-point equality comparison

Reports floating-point values that are being compared using the == or != operator.

Floating-point values are inherently inaccurate, and comparing them for exact equality is seldom the desired semantics.

This inspection ignores comparisons with zero and infinity literals.


void m(double d1, double d2) { if (d1 == d2) {} }
