Hmm, as I read the docs, tags contain cells, not the other way around. You can ask whether a tag contains a given cell by something like

.tbl tag includes mytag 12.34 

and you can get a list of tag names with

.tbl tag names

and of course a combination of the two and a loop can tell you which tags a given cell is in. Somehow it seems that you are not expected to want that...

By the way, I suppose these threads should have moved to r-devel long ago.
