Enforce location of semicolons (semi-style)

The --fix option on the command line can automatically fix some of the problems reported by this rule.

Generally, semicolons are at the end of lines. However, in semicolon-less style, semicolons are at the beginning of lines. This rule enforces that semicolons are at the configured location.
