I voted for pipe because I knew it was not a slash or a dash. I hadn't known a term existed such as 'pipe'.

In my experience, it is referred to as a 'vertical bar'. It is used in unix as the 'pipe' operator, but that isn't the name of the symbol. In other contexts it is used as and 'Or' operator, but that doesn't mean that the symbol is called 'Or'.
