"between 0 and X" not working as expected?
I wanted to quickly strip all those line numbers and extra line returns by making a simple regular expression to find & replace:
won't match anything in RegExr (google "RegExr Gskinner"), and in sublime text 2 it is matching as expected....
Why is this?

I'm pretty sure this pattern is not what you want. It matches any sequence of digits or spaces anywhere in the whole input. If you run it on a piece of code, you'll end up with a mess.
The first thing you'll need is an anchor to only match digits at the beginning of a line:
The regex may need further fine-tuning, but I can't tell without seeing the concrete input.
I have no idea why you get no matches in RegExr. But why does that matter, anyway?

Or get an text editor that can work in column mode to remove the first characters on every line.
