I'm used to the ABNT2 brazilian portuguese layout, which is very nice for both programming and typing with accents, but my apple keyboard lacks keys that are standard for such layout, like one on the left of Z and a fourth on the right of M. As a result, slashes and question mark need extra work to type, namely pressing alt-q, alt-shift-q and alt-w. But nothing for pipe.

So I wondered how I could type a pipe without messing with ukelele as suggested here?
