Pipe Symbol - The vertical line Mac

The vertical line | (also called "Pipe Symbol") is well hidden on the Mac keyboard. In normal everyday life on the Mac you rarely need the stroke. But if you need it, we'll tell you where to find it.

To get the line, press the key combination [Alt - 7]. Small hint: above the [7] is the slash /, which you just move with [Alt].
For this you need the vertical bar

The vertical bar appears frequently in the following areas:

     In some texts one finds the sign as an optical separator between words or text areas. In mathematics and physics he often appears as a symbol.
     More often than not, the "pipe" icon is used when working on the Unix shell of Mac OS X. There it serves to divert expenses from one program to another.
