Inspectopedia Help

Loop executes zero or billions of times

Reports loops that cannot be completed without an index overflow or loops that don't loop at all. It usually happens because of a mistake in the update operation.

Example:

void foo(int s) { for (int i = s; i > 12; i++) { // i-- should be here System.out.println(i); } }
