Period missing after "limit".  JIC, remember that we ask that periods be
followed by 2 spaces.

GNU Coding Style requirement: Binary operators should be at the start
of the next line, not at the end. For instance:

	  if (argv[i][j] == ' '  || argv[i][j] == '\n'
              || argv[i][j] == '\t' || argv[i][j] == '"')

Also, watch out for the extra space before ')' - please remove it.

Same as above.
