The slash is an oblique slanting line punctuation mark ⟨/⟩. Once used to mark periods and commas, the slash is now most often used to represent exclusive or inclusive ordivision and fractions, and as a date separator. It is called a solidus in Unicode, it is also known as an oblique stroke, and it has several other historical or technical names, including oblique and virgule. In some programming languages the double slash (“//”) means the start of a ‘single line comment’.
