[R] help with "\" in strings

I would like to create a "\%" that can be written to a file as I am writing
a procedure to output to latex.

I can't create a "\%" and it is driving me crazy.


x = "This is a test % string"
gsub ("%", "\\%", x)
writeLines(x, fileConn) 


Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
