The commands starting with \ are psql commands. They are only executed 
on the client side by psql. Stored procedures of course run on the 
server, and don't know anything about psql \commands. What you can do 
is setup a script for psql that first calls your stored procedure and 
then uses \copy or \!pg_dump. But you can't put these commands in the 
stored procedure.
