Have several thousand instances of:
mysql_free_result($rst_airport);
where ($rst...) will always be different.

Simply need to remove all of these lines. Is there a way?

in dreamweaver open the project
control-F to bring up the search/replace dialog box and the there is a line where you can state the whole folder
select the folder that contains the files with this statement.
and then fill  in the find and replace with what you want  (personally I would cop the folder to a back up incase)
maybe in you case -
if the $rst is different then replace
mysql_free_result  with
/*mysql_free_result    to make it a a comment ?

Yes, Dreamweaver's search and replace supports regular expressions.  When you invoke the Search and Replace dialog, switch it to Code View and find the Use Regex checkbox on the dialog and check it.  The search would look something like this:

mysql_free_result\(\$rst.*\);

Try doing a search only on the above.
