I have what some of you might categorise as a dumb question, but I cannot solve it. I have this vector:
a <- c(NA,NA,TRUE,NA,TRUE,NA,TRUE)
And I want to get this in a new vector:
b <- c(NA,NA,1,NA,2,NA,3)
That simple. All the ways I am trying do not preserve the NA and I need them untouched. I would prefer if there would be a way in base R.
