Replace empty class body

Reports declarations of classes and objects with an empty body.

Use the 'Remove redundant empty class body' quick-fix to clean up the code.


class EmptyA() {} // <== empty body class EmptyB { companion object {} // <== empty body } fun emptyC() { object {} // <== anonymous object, it's ok (not reported) }

After the quick fix is applied:

class EmptyA() class EmptyB { companion object } fun emptyC() { object {} }
