ereg_replace error issue

Hello,

I am getting this error:
Deprecated: Function ereg_replace() is deprecated in /var/ww...

with this line of code:
mysql_real_escape_string(ereg_replace("([0-9](-| |.))?(\(?[0-9]{3}\)?(-| |.)?)?[0-9]{3}(-| |.)?[0-9]{4}", "", $row['description']))

Open in new window


I tried to replace ereg_replace with preg_replace but I am getting this error:

Warning: preg_replace() [function.preg-replace]: Unknown modifier '?' in /va...

Use preg_replace instead (http://it2.php.net/preg_replace):

mysql_real_escape_string(preg_replace("#([0-9](-| |.))?(\(?[0-9]{3}\)?(-| |.)?)?[0-9]{3}(-| |.)?[0-9]{4}#", "", $row['description']))
