,----[ C-h f org-table-to-lisp RET ]
| org-table-to-lisp is an autoloaded compiled Lisp function in
| ‘../org-mode/lisp/org-table.el’.
| (org-table-to-lisp &optional TXT)
| Convert the table at point to a Lisp structure.
| The structure will be a list.  Each item is either the symbol ‘hline’
| for a horizontal separator line, or a list of field values as strings.
| The table is taken from the parameter TXT, or from the buffer at point.
| [back]

returns the table as a nested list you can map with lots of Elisp
functions (like mapcar). 


| my | tab |
|  1 |   2 |


(("my" "tab") ("1" "2"))
