Hi, You need an anchor '^' to make sure the matchings start from the beginning of your strings..and your requirements might be written into two patterns which would be much easier to understand(the order of two s/// expressions matters)..
#!/usr/bin/perl
use warnings;
use strict;

while(<DATA>) {
    s/^(\d\d[1-9])0(?=[1-9])/$1/;
    s/^(\d\d(?:[1-9]0)?)0+/$1/;

    print;
}

__DATA__
215000007801
300000324002
890000457651
210004563401

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • Outside of code tags, you may need to use entities for some characters:
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
