Re: Follow-up: Re: Too many tokens?

Check posix guide, realloc() is defined by the standard.

Also, you can add a realloc wrapper as with malloc() and free(), just in case.

The glibc and Solaris man pages indicate that the contents of a buffer
passed to realloc() remain unchanged up until the lesser of the two sizes,
but I wasn't sure if that was a 100% portable assumption and I wanted to be
safe. If it is portable, my life becomes a whole lot easier because I can
just realloc() as necessary.
