Code Inspection: Result of assignment used

Reports an assignment expression where the result of the assignment is used in the containing expression. Such assignments often indicate coding errors, for example, = instead of ==. Moreover, they can result in confusion due to the order of operations, as evaluation of the assignment may affect the outer expression in unexpected ways.

Expressions in parentheses are ignored.
