I feel the tilde key is far too overlooked. It basicly only gets used in gaming, or incoding. I feel the need to post this here because the ~'s need some r-e-s-p-e-c-t. Thoughts on the tilde key, stories...so on?

¿Qué día es mañana? i prefer it over an n but i think that completley changes it

It's also used for symbolizing vibrato in tabs.

...Can you have a freestanding tilde?

That's what I was taught, an equals sign, but using two tildes instead of dashes.

no that means "approximately equal to"

like sin A "double tidle" A, when A is small and in radians

edit:

or 30.000000000001 "double tidle" 30

or 30.000000000001 "double tidle" 30

That would still be saying that 30.000000001 is about 30...still an "equation".

its used more for statements than equations, you can't solve them. you use it to say "is approxiately equal to"... assume it is actually equal to by using limits etc.

edit: that made no sense. 2 in the morning is too late for maths kids, don't try it....

It has a name?...

and a meaning!
