In any case, I was almost done with a very similar solution to yours when I got your email, so I merged my changes, carried through some of yours, and fixed a few bugs in my original patch which also existed in yours (I checked my version into CVS last night and it went out to be tested on some dozen platforms with mixed results - at this point, at least most of the bugs should have been fixed though not all platforms have checked in for the second time).

I also installed getndelim2 as a separate module since Jim Meyering requested it.

Oh, I also switched limit to be a limit on the number of characters to read rather than the amount of memory to allocate. It is easy enough for the caller to determine limit from linesize if her intentions are to limit memory and this way there are never any bytes thrown away. Limiting the number of bytes read also simplified getndelim2() considerably.
