We need a whole WithFilter class to honor the "doesn't create a new collection" contract even though it seems unlikely to matter much in a collection with max size 1.

final def collect[B](pf: PartialFunction[Nothing, B]): Option[B]

Returns a scala.Some containing the result of applying pf to this scala.Option's contained value, if this option is nonempty and pf is defined for that value.

Returns a scala.Some containing the result of applying pf to this scala.Option's contained value, if this option is nonempty and pf is defined for that value. Returns None otherwise.

Value Params
pf

the partial function.

Returns

the result of applying pf to this scala.Option's value (if possible), or None.

Example

// Returns Some(HTTP) because the partial function covers the case.
Some("http") collect {case "http" => "HTTP"}
// Returns None because the partial function doesn't cover the case.
Some("ftp") collect {case "http" => "HTTP"}
// Returns None because the option is empty. There is no value to pass to the partial function.
None collect {case value => value}

final def contains[A1](elem: A1): Boolean

Tests whether the option contains a given value as an element.

Tests whether the option contains a given value as an element.

This is equivalent to:

option match {
 case Some(x) => x == elem
 case None    => false
}
Value Params
elem

the element to test.

Returns

true if the option has an element that is equal (as determined by ==) to elem, false otherwise.

Example

// Returns true because Some instance contains string "something" which equals "something".
Some("something") contains "something"
// Returns false because "something" != "anything".
Some("something") contains "anything"
// Returns false when method called on None.
None contains "anything"

Returns the option's value if it is nonempty, or null if it is empty.

def stepper[S <: Stepper[_]](implicit shape: StepperShape[Nothing, S]): S

Returns a scala.collection.Stepper for the elements of this collection.

Returns a scala.collection.Stepper for the elements of this collection.

The Stepper enables creating a Java stream to operate on the collection, see scala.jdk.StreamConverters. For collections holding primitive values, the Stepper can be used as an iterator which doesn't box the elements.

The implicit scala.collection.StepperShape parameter defines the resulting Stepper type according to the element type of this collection.

Note that this method is overridden in subclasses and the return type is refined to S with EfficientSplit, for example scala.collection.IndexedSeqOps.stepper. For Steppers marked with scala.collection.Stepper.EfficientSplit, the converters in scala.jdk.StreamConverters allow creating parallel streams, whereas bare Steppers can be converted only to sequential streams.
