It is impossible put in the replacement parameter, on ereg_replace function, one literal text of this format: \digit, e.g, \1, because the substrings replacements have preference.

It, for me, is interesting when preparing string substituitions previously, with the ereg_replace function.

Reproduce code:
echo ereg_replace("a", "\\\\0", "bbabb");

Expected result:

Actual result:

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
