Either "\\A" or "\A"R should work. By default, slang interprets
a single backslash as an escape for the following character.
To prevent this, one can either use a double-backslash, "\\A"
or, in slang-2, add an R suffix to the entire string:
"Wavelength [\A]"R.

The alias function is only intended to substitute one name for
another and isn't general enough for this purpose. Instead, I
think you want to define a new function, such as:

define dibu(g)
{
pdcc(g);
opmcc(g);
presid(-g, 0);
}

The new function can then be used directly:

g = combine_datasets ([1:4]);
dibu (g);

Thanks,
