how to transform Nil to None scala

To transform Nil to None in Scala, you can use the Option type. The Option type in Scala represents a value that may or may not be present. Here's how you can transform Nil to None:

val nilList: List[Int] = Nil
val optionList: Option[List[Int]] = Some(nilList).filter(_.nonEmpty)

In the above code snippet, we start with a Nil list and then wrap it in the Some constructor. We use the filter method to check if the list is non-empty (_.nonEmpty), and if it is empty, it will transform it to None. If the list is non-empty, it will remain as Some.

Now, optionList will be of type Option[List[Int]] and will be None if the initial list was Nil, or Some(List[Int]) if the list was non-empty.

This is how you can transform Nil to None in Scala using the Option type.
