Can someone help me interpret this line of code ?

The board is a feather huzzah and I am trying to run an example program and all it does is produce ********************* except for reporting the number of characters received.
The example program is test_with_gps_device using tinygps
Its in the examples underTinyGPS but here it is also.

and here is the statement that I would like decoded.
I dont understand this bit
TinyGPS::GPS_INVALID_AGE

if (age == TinyGPS::GPS_INVALID_AGE)

That compares the value in the variable "age" to a constant that represents an invalid value.

Your GPS module probably does not have a satellite fix. Take it outside so that it has a clear view of the sky.

TinyGPS::GPS_INVALID_AGE

The :: before the name of the constant (I assume it’s a constant because it’s all upper-case) says that the constant GPS_INVALID_AGE is part of the TinyGPS class.

If you look at TinyGPS.h, you may learn more from any comments the writer of the library left. (Though, comments in library code is usually scarce and cryptic).
