Generally the only change you need to make for transition from ereg to preg 
(for simple expressions, anyway) is the addition of pattern delimiters. So the 
above becomes, for example:

  $sql = preg_replace("|\n#[^\n]*\n|", "", $sql);

Although I would argue that those \ characters should be escaped (and should 
have been even for ereg), so the more correct version of this is:

  $sql = preg_replace("|\\n#[^\\n]*\\n|", "", $sql);
