/ Slash - A sign with which the specification file into a series of folders (directories, folders) to separate the file name, folder names in Unix operating systems. Part of the operating system command syntax. In Windows operating systems, this character serves to further direct the operations command. Part of the syntax of the operating system commands.
// or /// More slashes - The group of characters that are usually set in the WEB browser. For example, if instead of the URL is entered '//device_name' or '//IP_device_address' enables access to the WEB interface of the device if the device supports that.
