It seems like you might've missed one more thing, you need the brackets
next to 'x' to get it to work.
x[] <- lapply(x, function(xx) {
xx[is.nan(xx)] <- NA_real_
xx
})
is different from
x <- lapply(x, function(xx) {
xx[is.nan(xx)] <- NA_real_
xx
})
Also, if all of your data is numeric, it might be better to convert to a
matrix before doing your calculations. For example:
x <- as.matrix(x)
x[is.nan(x)] <- NA_real_
I'd also suggest this same solution for the other question you posted,
x[x == 0] <- NA
