I can't find the keyboard combination to make the | symbol. On snow leopard "shift+ı" worked. I've tried shift+\. Any suggestions?

I was on a turkish-q keyboard. The correct combination is strange, but alt + < worked for me.

It is changed on Yosemite. It is now Alt + - minus. Thanks Appletard. –  emrah Mar 10 at 20:14
