That usually means "If and only if". See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/If_and_only_if

Flashback in my memory: My academic advisor during undergraduate days (now N decades ago) was from China. There were no personal computers (anywhere in the world) when he wrote his doctoral thesis. He wrote it out by hand, and asked a secretary to type it for him, for presentation to the committee. After she gave him the completed thesis, all typed up, she added: "Oh, and I corrected all of your misspellings of 'if'!"

I'm sure he was pulling his hair out after that one! Glad we live in the days of Jira to avoid mishaps on that scale...
