Am I right that you are using Unix? I am using Windows.
What surprises me that Roy's method of macro substituion works,
but typing double backslash doesn't.

My guess is that \\ in Windows is a special character, meaning
it is reserved for specifying path names or accessing network places.
And to get \\ into the output file, poor Windows users should type something different.
But I failed to discover, what...

Maybe people at StataCorp know the answer....
