Code Inspection: Expression is always 'true' or always 'false'
This inspection is fairly obvious: JetBrains Rider analyzes values and nullability, integer arithmetics, and so on, and suggests eliminating expressions that are always
true or always
false based on its analysis results.
The only problem with this inspection is that sometimes it's not obvious how JetBrains Rider has come to this conclusion. Because of this, you may be unwilling to accept suggestions to replace expressions with explicit
false, or to remove a redundant checks in
if statements. Below are some StackOverflow questions that illustrate this problem:
ReSharper claims that my expression is always true? Is it correct or is it a bug?
