Dynamic type used in static context

Reports usages of dynamic types (instance, class, and self) in static contexts. Usage of a dynamic type in a static context can be considered confusing as the type will never change.

A quick fix is available to replace the dynamic type usage with its static equivalent.


class Example # 'instance' used in a static context INSTANCE: instance # 'class' used in a static context CLASS: class end

After the quick fix:

class Example INSTANCE: Example CLASS: singleton(Example) end
