    I not so good at C but I think this is the problem:
    You type more than what getchar takes and put in s. the rest needs to be flushed.

    edit: Newer mind this I did read it wrong
    [I not so good at C but obvious line 29 don't do what we want it to do.
    I think the best thing to do is to use the lim value so you newer add to much chars to the s array in the first place.
    Your not getting any out of bounds error messages?]

    Please, Tell us what terminal, charset and operating system you are using. Assumed you run it on a different platform than GNU/Linux you should pay attention on different line delimiter(s).
