void exception(char *string)

dmc main.c a.c

 Error 42: Symbol Undefined __exception

If math.h is included in main.c the compiler reports the above error.
According to the latest C standard "exception" is not reserved word nor part
of the standard math library.

If you look in math.h exception is defined as a struct unless you do:

#define _EXCEPTION_DEFINED


Including this define in your code fixes the problem but I'd probably 
choose a different name for your function.
