bug#23488: 25.0.93; Modules: inconsistent return types for error reporti

From: Philipp Stephani
Subject: bug#23488: 25.0.93; Modules: inconsistent return types for error reporting
Date: Mon, 09 May 2016 18:49:04 +0200

Of the module environment functions, 'copy_string_contents' is
inconsistent with all the other functions in that it returns a boolean
to indicate success/failure.  All other functions only set the last
error status, to be checked with non_local_exit_check etc.  This should
be made consistent, e.g. my having copy_string_contents return void.

Furthermore, the comment for copy_string_contents is incorrect.  If
BUFFER is NULL, it returns true, not false.
