after having typed ~= many times and found it very irritating in Eclipse
editors that the sequence to enter this has to be:
'~' ' '|'<esc>' '='
whereas it in the native mac is fine to type just '~' '='.
In Eclipse any character after ~ that it does not recognize as
composable deletes the ~ character.

All Eclipse editors (I tried) have the same behavior.
('vi' works fine though ;) )

I have the same issue when entering a regexp ~/.../.

How does this work on the Linux and Windows versions of Eclipse (try it
in a Java editor for instance).

Anyway, this has led me to consider replacing the use of ~ with ?. i.e.
'~=' becomes '?=' and patterns become ?/../ for regexp and ?" " for
simple pattern.
