Unnecessary modifier

Reports redundant modifiers and suggests to remove them. The resulting code will be shorter, but the behaviour and meaning will remain the same.

Example 1:

// all code is implicitly strictfp under Java 17 and higher strictfp class X { // inner enums are implicitly static static enum Inner { A, B, C } // inner records are implicitly static static record R() { } }

Example 2:

final record R() { // all records are implicitly final }

Example 3:

// all interfaces are implicitly abstract abstract interface Printer { // all interface members are implicitly public public int size(); // all inner classes of interfaces are implicitly static static class Inner {} }
