A CMS script that we use has some use of deprecated php functions since php 5.3.0 which is now throwing errors..

Function ereg_replace() is deprecated

I need a quick fix on the following ereg_replace function to make it compatible with php 5.3 so that it uses preg_replace instead.
$processedTitle = ereg_replace('[^a-zA-Z0-9\\'.$space.']', '', $processedTitle); // strip the rest
    $processedTitle = ereg_replace('\\'.$space.'+',$space,$processedTitle); // Convert multiple 'spaces' to a single one
    $processedTitle = trim($processedTitle,$space);
