      Description

      Unused parameters are misleading. Whatever the value passed to such parameters is, the behavior will be the same.

      Noncompliant Code Example

      function doSomething($a, $b) { // "$a" is unused
        return compute($b);
      }
      

      Compliant Solution

      function doSomething($b) {
        return compute($b);
      }
      

      Exceptions

      Functions in classes that override a class or implement interfaces are ignored.

      class C extends B {
      
        function doSomething($a, $b) {     // no issue reported on $b
          compute($a);
        }
      
      }
