V3023. Consider inspecting this expression. The expression is excessive or contains a misprint.

The analyzer has detected a suspicious code fragment with a redundant comparison. There may be a superfluous check, in which case the expression can be simplified, or an error, which should be fixed. Consider the following example:

if (firstVal == 3 && firstVal != 5)

This code is redundant as the condition will be true if 'firstVal == 3', so the second part of the expression just makes no sense.

There are two possible explanations here:

1) The second check is just unnecessary and the expression can be simplified. If so, the correct version of that code should look like this:

if (firstVal == 3)

2) There is a bug in the expression; the programmer wanted to use a different variable instead of 'firstVal'. Then the correct version of the code should look as follows:

if (firstVal == 3 && secondVal != 5)

According to Common Weakness Enumeration, potential errors found by using this diagnostic are classified as CWE-571.

You can look at examples of errors detected by the V3023 diagnostic.
