What it does#

Checks for unnecessary string literal or float casts in Decimal constructors.

Why is this bad?#

The Decimal constructor accepts a variety of arguments, including integers, floats, and strings. However, it's not necessary to cast integer literals to strings when passing them to the Decimal.

Similarly, Decimal accepts inf, -inf, and nan as string literals, so there's no need to wrap those values in a float call when passing them to the Decimal constructor.

Prefer the more concise form of argument passing for Decimal constructors, as it's more readable and idiomatic.
