I have a vector where an integer is followed by a randomly varying number of NA elements. I want to replace the NA's with the preceding integer. Let me explain with a simple example : avec<- c(1,NA,NA,5,NA,3,4,NA,NA,NA,NA,9,NA,0,NA,NA) I want to get the following vector from a : bvec<-c(1,1,1,5,5,3,4,4,4,4,4,9,9,0,0,0)

How can I do this with R? Will appreciate all the help that I can get. Thanking you,
