Symbolically, || points Stata 8 and 9 users onwards and upwards (recall that only in 9 do you get arrows). Syntactically, this was introduced in Stata 8. Have a look at [G] graph twoway. In 9, the separator notation has been applied elsewhere, with -xtmixed- success. Unix-lovers will recall the pipe notation of their favourite OS (imitated in a broken way by MS-DOS).
