Using regular expressions to remove Numbers at beginning of titles
Just imported a number of old files I had numbered sequentially with the numbers at the beginning of the titles. With Calibre those aren't necessary since the "series" field can handle them and they mess up the alphabetical ordering.
Is there a way to remove those using a regular expression? For example there is a series of books such as
01 title of book a
02 Title of book b
and so on. I'd like to get rid of the first 3 characters in each for all of them at once. I could edit them individually, but that takes a lot of time.
Any help would be appreciated.

\d+ will match the numbers and I think \s+ the space.
Not at my computer so can't try it.
