V517. The use of 'if (A) {...} else if (A) {...}' pattern was detected. There is a probability of logical error presence.

The analyzer detected a possible error in a construct consisting of conditional statements. Consider the sample:

if (a == 1)
else if (a == 2)
else if (a == 1)

In this sample, the 'Foo3()' function will never get control. Most likely, we deal with a logical error and the correct code should look as follows:

if (a == 1)
else if (a == 2)
else if (a == 3)

In practice, such an error might look in the following way:

if (radius < THRESH * 5)
  *yOut = THRESH * 10 / radius;
else if (radius < THRESH * 5)
  *yOut = -3.0f / (THRESH * 5.0f) * (radius - THRESH * 5.0f) + 3.0f;
   *yOut = 0.0f;

It is difficult to say how a correct comparison condition must look, but the error in this code is evident.

You can look at examples of errors from real projects which were detected by this diagnostic message.

Do you make errors in the code?
