git can be used for any type of file. Even "binary" files such as compiled
programs and MS Office .doc & .docx files. It is not restricted to "text
only". Now, some of the functions in git might not work well with a binary
type file. As an example, something like "git diff" won't tell you the
changes you made in an Office .doc file in any form that is useful.  But
you certainly can do a "git add" of a binary format file. And you can do a
"git checkout ..." to restore an old version of a binary format file. Those
are just two examples that I can think of which might be useful.

Wasn't there something about a PASCAL programmer knowing the value of
everything and the Wirth of nothing?
