OK, silly me, that didn't take very long to figure out:
$string = <>; $string =~ s/ *//;

Edit by Corion
This answer is maybe sufficient, if every string contains at least one space. If one of your strings does not contain a space, it will remove spaces from the middle or the end of the string. Please have a look at chromatics post for a correct answer.
