What exactly do you mean?

If you want to use "~" without it being taken as a metacharacter, then use \~ or "~" depending on programming language.

If you want to know how to get a tilde on a keyboard that doesn't have one, that depends on keyboard language: German would be AltGr+.

PS Unless you have a very good reason, you should not be using Fedora 13: it's years out of date and no longer supported.
