Value of float variable

P: n/a
Hi,

I use Visual C++ 6.0. While in debug mode I watch a float variable in the
watch window. It has the value

-1.#IND0

What does this mean? I haven't found anything about this on the net.

Thanks,
Cristian

It is the VC++ way of outputting 'quiet Nan' or 'Indefinite'.
NaN stands for: Not a number
