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'.

Quoted for truth.
It's used to link commands in Unix-Linux OS
its name's 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'.
this is a slash "/" & this is a dash "-"
As I know dash is this one 👉-
and slash is this one👉/
so it 👉|👈should be pipe😕
