replace comma with space

Hi,
how do i replace a comma, a carrage return, new line, a tab into a blank space all in once.

str_replace and preg_replace.?

str_replace works for only one.  i have

$Comments = str_replace(",", "", $row_orders_status_history["comments"]);

fixed with the function.
function filter_text($text) {
$filter_array = array(",", "\r", "\n");
return str_replace($filter_array,"",$text);
}

The above example didn't include tab removal, here is the updated version along with example/usage code:

<?php
$my_text="This is my text, there is a comma,\rblah blah\nblah blah\ttabbed in here\tand here\n";

function replace_chars($input)
{
      $filter=array(",","\r","\n","\t");
      
      return str_replace($filter,"",$input);
}

print replace_chars($my_text);
?>
