Code Inspection: 'switch' with common parts

Reports the 'switch' statements with duplicated common parts.

In the following example, all branches of the switch statement contain the common echo $message statement. After the quick-fix is applied, this statement extracted from the switch statement.

switch ($a) { case 1: echo $message; doSmth(); break; case 2: echo $message; echo $error; break; default: echo $message; doSmthElse(); break; }
echo $message; switch ($a) { case 1: doSmth(); break; case 2: echo $error; break; default: doSmthElse(); break; }
