I want to search for a specific string that unfortunately contains google wildcards (*).

How can I search pages where the exact string extern void* appears.

(Some of you might have guessed that I am wrestling with C these days)

I tried with DuckDuckGo or Bing with the same result: the * is interpreted.

You cannot search for string containing * with Google: the character is ignored. See replacement for Google Code Search? for searching code.
