This code allocated a correctly sized buffer, read past the end of the
source buffer, writing off the end of the target buffer, and then writing
a '\0' terminator past the end of the target buffer (in the wrong place).
It then leaked the buffer.
Switch to a statically sized buffer on the stack and update the source pointer and
length before use so the correct things are copied.
Fix a logic error in the checks that the format of the line is as
expected and move on out of an assert.
Remove an unneeded close(). fclose() closes the descriptor.
