Code Inspection: 'for' loop may be replaced by 'while' loop

Reports a for loop that contains neither initialization nor an update component. Suggests replacing the loop with a simpler while statement.


for(; exitCondition(); ) { process(); }

After the quick-fix is applied the result looks like:

while(exitCondition()) { process(); }

Use the checkbox below if you wish this inspection to ignore for loops with trivial or non-existent conditions.

Suppress an inspection in the editor

  2. Click the arrow next to the inspection you want to suppress and select the necessary suppress action.
