Urgent:

Okay, not really.

But WHAT do you call this character: |


You know, just above ENTER, on US keyboards, anyway. SHIFT + BACKSLASH.

What is the name of that symbol? I use it in my day to day life, actually -- it performs a function in a work program, but I never know how to refer to it.

I once heard it called a "Pipe." I think. No, not that kind of pipe.

EDIT : I'm hearing that "Pipe" is acceptable, as is "Bar" or "vertical bar."

Thoughts?
