    My god, that hurts! :-D You simply made my day!

    That key is located between and .
    PS: You have to use too

    Example: |||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

    Or you could simply cut and paste... :-D

    Now, seriously: what kind of keyboard were you using when you typed "character | as in | myFile |" in this postage? Could it be the german one - because that layout is widely spread too. One of my computers is equipped with such a kind of keyboard... I use to type romanian texts; and I know for a fact that it requires a prodigious memory to type romanian diacritics... on a german keyboard :-(
    That's the reason I answered your STUPID question; because it isn't stupid at all, but just amusing.
