- Code that is never run because of a return, throw, continue, or break.
- Case statements in a switch that do not have a break statement.

- A leading zero that turns a number into octal (base 8).
- Comments within comments.
- Ambiguity whether two adjacent lines are part of the same statement.
- Statements that don’t do anything.
- Regular expressions that are not preceded by a left parenthesis, assignment, colon, or comma.
- Statements that are separated by commas instead of semicolons.
- Use of increment (++) and decrement (–) except for simple statements such as “i++;” or “–i;”.
- Use of the void type.
