## LaTeX output

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.
