The problem is that the backslash \ has a special meaning
in strings, just as in programming languages like C.
For example a \t is a shorthand for a tab and \" is double
quote (otherwise it'd be impossible to include a double 
quote within a string, right). If you actually want a 
backslash within a string, you have to add an extra (sic)
backslash in front of it. So, if you replace "\" with "\\"
it should work better.

I'm sure you know that (lines "string") is equivalent to "string".
