How to include only selected files into git repository and exclude all the rest?

Is there any chance to do an opposite to what .gitignore file does? I mean include only specified files and exclude all the rest? Thank you in advance.

Answer

You can try the following:

#ignore everything
*

#except .c source
!*.c

(! negates the patterns specified in gitignore)
