The analyzer allows to detect suspicious operations such as '+', '-', '<<', '>>' where one of the operands is equal to 0, or the operation '*', '/', '%' with the operand, equal to 1.
The V6048 diagnostic rule helps to perform code refactoring and sometimes detect errors.
These are examples of constructs that cause this diagnostic message to appear:
int y = 1; ... int z = x * y;
This code can be simplified. For example:
int z = x;
According to Common Weakness Enumeration, potential errors found by using this diagnostic are classified as CWE-480.
