I have a file which has the following data
022D0
00709
00701
006F9
006F1
022CF
022CE
022D1
00846
0068A

How do I write a script do that the 0's are removed from each row, So when I input the above file the output should looks like

22D0
709
701
6F9
6F1
22CF
22CE
22D1
846
68A

My personal favorite is using vi

:1,$ s/^[0]*//


That is what I am used to.

As a command:

sed "s/^0*//" file

Or in a script:

sed "s/^0*//" $1
