... My point was that you needn't use getline(), which reallocates
buffers to ensure that you can fit the entire line in a single string.
That's entirely unnecessary, because any single line longer than
perhaps a few hundred characters will not *fit*. So just use fgets(),
which is actually portable. Yes, fgets() reads lines too.
