If you want to include the first two digits you have to remove the two
zeros from the pattern.
ruleno=`ipfw list | sed -n -e "s/\([0-9]*\) $target/\1/p"`
This is because in the other pattern when the rule number does not start
with "00" then it will not be matched and nothing will be returned.
The 's' is the substitute command, '/' is the operand separator, the
'\(' and '\)' construct saves the text it matches in the register '\1',
'[0-9]*' matches any number of digits (even 0 of them), $target is
replaced with the contents of the shell variable. All of that is
replaced by just the text matched between '\(' and '\)'. The 'p' flag
causes the line (after substitution, that is, the text between '\(' and
'\)') to be printed (and assigned to ruleno).
Hope that helps.
