Hi all,

In my work I do a lot of statistical analysis and present them in

tables in my papers. I am trying to write a function which creates a

LaTeX file from a matrix. It seems to work fine except that I can't find

a way to get Octave to print a \ character as is \begin{tabular} or

\end{tabular} (this will only make sense to LaTeX users). The first

gives me egin{tabular} and the second gives the warning

warning: unrecognized escape sequence `\e' -- converting to `e'

so I get end{tabular} rather than \end{tabular}. Is there an output

conversion that applies to this case? I know there is one for the symbol

%. For the other symbols like & no conversion is necessary but Octave

attaches importance to the symbol \.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
