//$line = preg_replace("/<?[ _0-9A-Za-z\$\?\&\"\=;]+QBUYURLQ[ _0-9A-Za-z\$\?\&\"\=;]+?>/", $buyurl, $line);

ok pretend thats all one line. the problem is that when using c++ style comments, I get a parse error @ line [length of file + 1]. using c style comments makes it go away. the point of the code it was to replace the php part of a line that contained QBUYURLQ in it w/ just the url. it's no longer needed, but took a while to figure out that a comment was generating a parse error :)

This is expected behavior.  Not a bug.

The part of the expression that is causing the problem is ?>.  Try just having // ?>, it will do the same thing.  PHP interprets this as the end of the code block.

An example of why this is so:

<?php print $value; // print value ?>
