Bool condition

Reports parts of boolean expressions that are either always true, always false, or redundant. Such boolean expressions can be simplified, which may improve a readability of the code. In some cases, this also indicates a presence of other issues.


func isNonZero(x, y int) bool { // the second comparison is either always true // or not executed at all return x > 0 && x > 0 }

You can apply the Simplify expression quick-fix for the x > 0 && x > 0 part. After the quick-fix is applied, the expression looks as follows: x > 0.
