'substring' call should be replaced with 'substringAfter'

Reports calls like s.substring(s.indexOf(x)) that can be replaced with s.substringAfter(x).

Using s.substringAfter(x) makes your code simpler.

The quick-fix replaces the substring call with substringAfter.


fun foo(s: String) { s.substring(s.indexOf('x')) }

After the quick-fix is applied:

fun foo(s: String) { s.substringAfter('x') }
