    I see @dreymar has touched upon composing a broken bar.

    Did you stumble across a clear history on the character? (not sure if I totally follow the link within the link.)

    Oh, that's cool!

    On the right hand rectangle, the result is way more pleasing as the vertical dashes are similar to the horizontal ones!  ( のvの) c[_]

    It'd work better in a proper terminal than on this forum, of course. There, the vertical dashes would form a proper line with nearly even gaps, as seen in the article.
