Subject: Trivia re long division

Does anyone know the name of the symbol that is used (it looks like one-half of a box) in long division, where the denominator is to the left of the box, and the numerator is in the box, and the results are put above the box? e.g., to divide 200 by 23, we start as below. What is the name of the vertical and horizontal bars between 23 and 200? ______ 23 |200
