That doesn't look much like C to me.

More context would be helpful - where did you see it? Can
you show us a snippet of code with this in?

It's probably what your system prints for some kind of NaN ("not a
number"); the "IND" means indefinite. You probably did something like
dividing zero by zero.

It's not code, it's output. It's a common format for the output of a
float of indeterminate value.
