# Inline Local Variables

# Description

According to the rule S1488 (opens new window) on the web site 'sonarcloud.io', local variables should not be declared and then immediately returned or thrown. Therefore this rule scans for local variables which are exclusively used in one single return- or throw statement and in-lines them if this is possible.

# Benefits

Simplifies code by removing unnecessary variable declarations.
