There is no '/' or '|' syntax. You have to use a delimiter there, you can
even use 'a' for it, if there is no 'a' in your pattern (it could work,
but it wouldn't do what you want).
I personally use '!' as delimiter, it's just personal preference..

Yes, it might be conceivable that there is some other language that has
the same constructs and it would work for that as well..
