Perception can differ, so verify and accommodate each other’s views.This has reference to this thread and a locked thread about pipe key.
The threads had two views on the same matter. Each author has their right to stick to their stand, because both are right and truthful as per the proof with them.
Juana explained what a pipe key is and showed by photo where it is found in her keyboard. True and we have to accept that.
Sun said "..I have only slash(\).." and that "Pipe key is generally not found on the modern keyboards. ".
Sun also added subsequently that "I went wrong with my pipe key that looks like a semi colon due to wear and tear, and I never used it."
Sun has not gone wrong.He presumed it to be so. Here is the Justification.
I quote from a web site computerhope.com.
"Alternatively referred to as a vertical bar, the pipe is a computer keyboard key "|" that is two vertical lines above one another and commonly looks like a full vertical line. . This symbol is found on the same United States QWERTY keyboard key as the backslashkey." UNQUTE. (ref: www.computerhope.com/jargon/p/pipe.htm)
The photo of the keyboard highlighting the pipe as given in the website page is attached.
In my keyboard also pipe-key is two small lines which may appear as semicolon on a cursory glance. It is paced just above enter key and to the left of back space key.
I understand from my search on this matter that UK keyboards have the pipe key exhibiting a 'broken vertical bar' (broken pipe symbol)which may be mistaken as colon. I US keyboards, it is shown as vertical line .Both are on the key having the backslash also.
Let us take the information behind both versions and be thankful to them.
