Hello,

Thanks for the feedback

As a quick work around you can use

#+name: remove-nil
#+begin_src emacs-lisp :var tbl=""
   (mapcar (lambda (row)
	     (mapcar (lambda (cell)		       
		       (if (equal "nil" cell)
			   ""
			cell))
		     row))
	   tbl)

#+end_src


    
#+BEGIN_SRC R  :results value :colnames yes :post remove-nil[:colnames yes](*this*)
data.frame(A=c(NA,1,1,1,1),B=c(1,2,NA,4,4))
#+end_src

#+RESULTS:
| A | B |
|---+---|
|   | 1 |
| 1 | 2 |
| 1 |   |
| 1 | 4 |
| 1 | 4 |

Thanks Chuck for pointing this out. R users are used to handle NA but in
this particular case where empty string and NA are treated
the same, I'm not sure the nil feature is very useful. If it does not break
anything else I will consider removing it.


Best regards,
