This really needs a cast to be proper:

s1 = (char) malloc (sizeofbuffer * sizeof(char));

The thing I forgot to mention is that you must remember to free the allocated memory when you are done with it. If you don't, you'll have a "memory leak" in your program - memory that is allocated but unreachable by any program code. So free it like this:

free (s1);

It's not the software that's free; it's you.
