I'm working on some Mathematica code that will help transform a large set of lists drawn from my company's legacy database systems. A typical row of the raw data looks like
{x1,NULL,NULL,x2,NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL,x3,NULL,NULL,x4,x5,NULL} ...
The lists are sequences of real numbers, separating some some number of Strings which for convenicence sake we call "NULL" (as opposed to a proper Mathematica Null). The goal is to create a new list where each NULL is replaced by the real number that most recently proceeds it (note that any number of NULLs may occur before or after any real values). I would like the code to return
{x1,x1,x1,x2,x2,x2,x2,x2,x3,x3,x3,x4,x5,x5}
Thanks
Mark
