A newbie (me) needs to understand a syntax I can't find in the documentation.
if ~isempty(E)
What does the ~ (tilde) mean or do prior to the isempty(E)?

This is the logical NOT operator, so ~isempty(E) will evaluate to true when E is not empty.

~ means 'not'
doc punct
At the command line will tell you other uses for ~ and the punctuation marks.
