argv-array: add pop function
Sometimes we build a set of similar command lines, differing only in the final arguments (e.g., "fetch --multiple"). To use argv_array for this, you have to either push the same set of elements repeatedly, or break the abstraction by manually manipulating the array's internal members. Instead, let's provide a sanctioned "pop" function to remove elements from the end. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
