I'm having issues making this work.
The title of the post describes a trivial problem (answer: #str+1).

I can't work by reading it what problem the code tries to solve.

Sorry, I meant end of string literal.

After a few hours I came up with this, which works:

local m, pos
  m, pos = string.match(word_eol[2], "(\\*)",1).."()", pos or 2)
until m == nil or #m % 2 == 0

(cw:sub(1,1) being one of " or ')
