Yes, "~=" commonly means "not equal to" in many programming languages and mathematical notation. It is often used to compare two values or variables to see if they are not equal [SL: removed URL that was unrelated to the question].However, the exact meaning of "~=" may vary depending on the context and programming language.

It means not equal to as you say. It doesn't have any other meaning in MATLAB. The ~ by itself has meaning. It can be used to not return certain outputs from a function.
