According to the documenmtation,preg_match can handle Arrays
But this will cause PHP to lock up the computer.

$regExp = "/((\/\*)+([\*]*\s*)+(\w+ *)+([\*]\s*(\*+\/{1}))+){1}/";
$file = file($obj->fileLocation);
$sql = preg_replace($regExp,"",$file);
I have tried imploding the array obtained from file() first
but the result was the same.

Maybe i should mention that PHP is running in CGI mode.

Please provide a self-contained example script.
(tested your script with using some random file and it works just fine)
