Does the 'Pipe' command | work in Packet Tracer?

The 'Pipe' command | (shift + backslash key) does not work in Packet Tracer for me. Is the pipe command supported in Packet Tracer? If not, is there anywhere official online that confirms that the command is not supported?

Hello,

 

what are you trying to accomplish ? The pipe '|' modifier works fine in PT, Shift+Backslash is just like entering a '?' mark and then hitting <ENTER>

 

Please clarify...

Thanks for you response!

 

I'm doing an online video course so am just following the exact same steps as the tutor. You'll see from my attachment that I've put in a show run and the 'pipe', but PT highlights it as invalid.

 

(You mention the '?', but on my US keyboard the pipe symbol is on the key directly above 'Enter'  i.e. Shift+Backslash)

Solved! I was using Version 6 of PT which does not support the pipe command. Downloaded Version 7 and pipe now works. Thanks everyone!
