in reply to index using a range

A slight variation on the solution proposed by vsespb, I think this is a little closer to what you want.

my $Str1 = "000001"; my $Index = length($1) if $Str1 =~ /^(0*)[1-9]$/; print "$Index\n";

    I was hoping I could incorporate the range ([0-9] or ^0) directly into the ‘index’ statement.
    $Index – index($Str1, ‘the first non-zero value’);
    but I guess not. So, it needs to be done in 2 statements.
