You can do this easily using a script. Just try this:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
infile=/path/to/input_file
i=1
while read -r line; do
echo $line | sed "s/^/$i\t/; s/$/\t0/"
i=$((i+1))
done < $infile
Or even you can use:
Code:
~$ sed 's/$/\t0/' infile.txt  | nl

Aside from the initial numbers, a search/replace operation using a text editor with regular expressions will do the job lickity split.
