Annotation Interface LeakedToResult

This annotation is used on a formal parameter to indicate that the parameter may be returned, but it is not otherwise leaked. (A parameter is leaked if it is stored in a field where it could be accessed later, and in that case this annotation would not apply.)

For example, the receiver parameter of StringBuffer.append(String s) is annotated as @LeakedToResult, because the method returns the updated receiver.

This annotation is currently trusted, not checked.
