Remove leading zeros

Post by othni »

I just want to remove leading zeros.

I tried:

^0{1,}

But it removes only the first one. This is my Trial Text:

0123
1230
00123
000456
123456


Al leading zeros have to be removed. Maybe is so easy I do not see it.

Or maybe it is Friday Night at the office after 7:30pm and my brain is home already?

Perl pattern by default are non-greedy, so either re-write the pattern as:

^0{1,}?

or change the pattern options to greedy.
