I suspect the answer is here:
I quote:
"Other characters that need to be quoted in macro arguments are curly
braces and backslash. For example
     @macname {\\\{\}\,}

Then the difference is that the example (@example ... @end) is not a
macro invocation like @code{...} is.

The good application of this is to double the \ -> \\ between curly braces.

Should I replace single \ and @bs{} by \\ in all langage files?

However, I grepped everywhere for /Applications/ and could not find
where it happens that it is converted to C:\Program Files.

Your thoughts on the best way to go? \\, @bs{} or /Applications/? Do
you confirm you prefer @bs{}?
