sed 's#0 */\* *nullptr *\*/#nullptr#g'

does the substitution regardless of how much space, including none, is between the 0 and the open-comment sequence, the open-comment and the word "nullptr," and that word and the close-comment.

To be extra paranoid, you could (in GNU sed) add a \b before the 0, to guard against matching the unlikely code snippet "50 /* nullptr */" or some such.

Subject: pre-html.cpp: add a space after "nullptr" in a comment

File: src/preproc/html/pre-html.cpp

    if (0 /* nullptr*/ == fp) {

  A space is missing in the comment to make it equal to other comments
of type " /* nullptr */".

  To facilitate global substitution of '0' with 'nullptr'.
