This patch adds a helper function with similar semantics to
vshCommandOptString that requests a string argument, but does some
reporting without the need to do it in the functions themselves.

The error reporting also provides information about the parameter
retrieval failed.

Trivial, but we usually describe what the function does at [1].

And have a ":" after @foo.

Not in virsh.c. All surrounding functions don't have the colon in the
comment. This is worth cleaning up separately instead of doing it in
multiple ways in a single file.

Agreed, a follow up patch will be good then. But others still stands.

I changed the comment to:
+ * vshCommandOptStringReq:
+ * @ctl virsh control structure
+ * @cmd command structure
+ * @name option name
+ * @value result (updated to NULL or the option argument)
+ *
+ * Gets a option argument as string. This function reports errors.

I think "The function reports errors" can just be removed. As it
doesn't report any error on success.


+ *
+ * Returns 0 on success or when the option is not present and not
+ * required, *value is set to the option argument. On error -1 is
+ * returned and error message printed.
+ */


ACK with that.
