           The value to replace the null value by


       The function of r.null is to explicitly create the NULL-value bitmap  file.  The  intended
       usage  is  to  update maps that do not have a NULL-value bitmap file (i.e. to indicate for
       each pixel if zero is a valid value or is to be considered as NULL, i.e. no  data  value).
       The module does not work with reclassified maps.

       The  design  is flexible. Ranges of values can be set to NULL and/or the NULL value can be
       eliminated and replace with a specified value.

       The setnull parameter is used to specify values in the ranges to be set to NULL.  A  range
       is  either  a  single value (e.g., 5.3), or a pair of values (e.g., 4.76-34.56).  Existing
       NULL-values are left NULL, unless the null argument is requested.

       The null parameter eliminates the NULL value and replaces it with value. This argument  is
       applied  only  to  existing  NULL  values,  and  not  to  the NULLs created by the setnull


       Note that the value is restricted to integer if the map is an integer map.

   r.null and reclassified maps
       r.null does not support reclassified maps because, if r.null was run on the reclass raster
       it  would  alter  the  original  and any other reclass rasters of the original.  Therefore
       r.null does not allow recoding reclassified maps (products of r.reclass).
       As a workaround, the way to recode such a map is: The user creates a raster map out of the
       reclassified map by copying it:
       r.mapcalc "newmap = reclass"

   NULL data compression
       By  default  no  data  files  (i.e.,  NULL  files)  are  not  compressed unless a specific
       environment variable is set. The NULL file compression must be explicitly turned  on  with
       export GRASS_COMPRESS_NULLS=1.
       Warning: such raster maps can then only be opened with GRASS GIS 7.2.0 or later. NULL file
       compression can be managed with r.null -z.


       Set specific values of a classified map to NULL:
       r.null map=landcover.30m setnull=21,22
       Set NULL-values of a map to a specific value:
       r.null map=fields null=99
