2.1.7 [ECMA-ES2017] Section 12.4.5.1 Runtime Semantics: Evaluation

V0190: The reference is retrieved twice

The specification states:

 12.4.5.1 Runtime Semantics: Evaluation
  
     UpdateExpression : LeftHandSideExpression --
  
         1.  Let lhs be the result of evaluating LeftHandSideExpression.
         2.  Let oldValue be ? ToNumber(GetValue(lhs)).
         3.  Let newValue be the result of subtracting the value 1 from oldValue, using 
             the same rules as for the - operator (see 12.8.5).
         4.  Perform ? PutValue(lhs, newValue).
         5.  Return oldValue.

Between steps 2 and 3 the following steps are added:

    a. If Type(lhs) is a Reference and if IsUnresolvableReference(_lhs_) is false and IsPropertyReference(_lhs_) is false:

        1.  Assert: lhs is a reference to an Environment Record.

        2.  Let hs be the result of evaluating an Identifier _id_ whose StringValue is GetReferencedName(lhs) as if _id_ were a LeftHandSideExpression.

        3.  ReturnIfAbrupt(lhs);

As a result, the reference is retrieved twice.
