'equal()' instead of 'equals()'

Reports declarations of equal() with a single parameter. Normally, this is a typo and equals() is actually intended.

A quick-fix is suggested to rename the method to equals.


class Main { public boolean equal(Object obj) { return true; } }

After the quick-fix is applied:

class Main { public boolean equals(Object obj) { return true; } }
