Guess Behaviour on too large inputs

The project description states:

It seems like the behaviour for too large inputs should be somehow defined. Does this mean we should somehow catch this case and react to it with "Invalid word. Try again: "?

The first sentence answers your question: “A guess is valid if it is in the dictionary.” Words of length >k are not in the dictionary. Hence, you should catch them.



So, if I understand correctly, we should not exit(EXIT_FAILURE) if a len(input) > k is given?
Directly related to this a second question: can we use functions like strlen() to compare with k?
(It requires the string library.)

Thanks in advance!
