From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  vertical bar
      The character "|", ASCII code 124.
     Common names: bar; or; or-bar; v-bar; pipe; vertical bar.
     Rare: ITU-T: vertical line; gozinta; thru; pipesinta;
     INTERCAL: spike.
     "Pipe", "gozinta", "thru" and "pipesinta" refer to the use of
     "|" in Unix shells to create a pipe.
     Some keyboards show both a solid vertical bar (code 124) and a

     [Does anyone call either kind of vertical bar "{pling"?
     Other codes?]
