Incorrect 'strings.Replace' count argument

Reports strings.Replace calls with the replace count 0 instead of -1.

The count argument for how many times a string should be replaced should not be 0 as it will not replace anything and make the function call redundant. Use -1 instead.


a := strings.Replace("SSS", "S", "H", 0) // replaces nothing b := strings.Replace("SSS", "S", "H", -1) // replaces all S occurrences with H
