      Suggested fixes are as follows. For the byte case, convert the literal to its byte representation. For example, "255" becomes "-1. For the character case, replace the comparison with "true"/"false" since it's not clear what was intended and that is semantically equivalent.

      TODO(eaftan): Suggested fixes don't handle side-effecting expressions, such as (d = == -1. Maybe add special case handling for assignments.
