For line buffering, I also use char arrays, but I'd be looking for
line borders with strcspn(3) or even index(3). Buffer limits would
hold robustly and even huge binary files with no '\n' at all would be
chewed by it smoothly. A counting mode could be added, like a
sophisticated wc(1), and providing an option to specify another char
or even several to be counted/delimited at could provide a useful
whole to be extended by other tools with different features.

Try stuff™ :-)
