Dear all,

Many thanks to all who always so quickly respond with helpful hints!

morning within about half an hour: my deepest compliments to the
developpers! (I had still 0.62.2 before.)

> xy <- list (a= c (1, 2, NA), b= c (2, 3))
> list.name <- "xy"
> get (list.name)$a [is.na (get (list.name)$a)] <- 0
Error: couldn't find function "get<-"
> xy
[1] 1 2 0

[1] 2 3

without the error? The problem is that I need to do this within a

Thanks for ideas and hints! Regards,
