I have a file like this

001 name_01
002 name_02
003 name_03

The output that I need from this file above is :

001  002  003

How do this in a shell command ? I prefer it to do it with sed or awk.
Thanks for help

Here is what you need to do:

assume that your file name is: test.txt

type in:

cat test.txt | awk '{print $1} | tr "\012" " " > test.tmp
echo "" >> test.tmp
mv test.tmp test.txt

This should work for you.
