I would like to use a tclArray:

mytkarray <- tclArray()

as the variable for a table:

table1 <- tkwidget(f1, 'table', variable= mytkarray)

but if I include character strings with embedded spaces, I get braces
appearing in the table.

I can remove them using a non-R tclarray, (the difference between the
first example of




- the result of the second of which includes the braces (although not in
the image provided!) and that of the first does not - but this seems
undesirably complicated. Am I missing something simple?

Any insights would be gratefully received,
