 \[ErrorIndicator]
  • Uninterpretable element.
  • Generated to indicate the position of a syntax error in messages produced by functions like Get and ToExpression.
  • Shown as ^^^ in OutputForm.
  • \[ErrorIndicator] indicates the presence of a syntax error, and so by default generates an error if you try to interpret it.
