    Hello,

    I'm completely new to mac. My OS is OSX 10.6.4.

    I have a wireless keyboard.

    I have used Linux a lot during the years and I am therefore used to use the console.

    However, an essential key is missing. I don't know the name of the key. You use it in front of commands like "grep" and "less". You could call it a vertical slash.

    Without this key, the shell is almost useless.

    What to do?

    Thanks

    Fred
