Non short-circuit boolean

Reports the non-short-circuit forms of boolean operators 'and' and 'or' (& and |).

The non-short-circuit versions are occasionally useful, but their presence is often due to typos of the short-circuit forms (&& and ||), and may lead to subtle bugs.


if (a & b) {}

After the quick-fix is applied:

if (a && b) {}
