Leading whitespace in directive comment

Reports leading whitespaces before Go directives in comments.

Go directives are not recognized if there is whitespace between // and the Go directive.

The quick-fix removes the leading whitespace before the Go directive.


// go:embed file.txt var File string

After the quick fix is applied:

//go:embed file.txt var File string
