Re: howto find token location for a specific string expression in pdfstream
Read chapter 18 of the book.
You'll find out how to do it, as well a severe warning that you shouldn't write your code that way because it's very bad taste to do it like that.

Also read this message:

AND DON'T EVER USE THE WORD "URGENT" AGAIN!!!
That's also very bad taste.
