There's no such thing as "committing a file" in Git.
Commits are made of arbitrary changes to arbitrary files.
Which changes made to which files will comprise the next commit, is
decided by the user each time the commit is being prepared.
So your question per se does not make much sense.
If you really meant a very narrow use case (you have a clean work tree,
then you run something wich regenerates a set of files, then you want to
commit *only the changes to these files* with a fixed commit message)
then it's a perfect case for a script or a Git alias.
