How to compress/backup just ascii-text files with linux tar

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 03/04/2009 - 16:38

I have a website with some large files like binary audio/mp3, video and xml. I want to automate a backup, which includes just text files like .html, .php, .inc, .tpl etc and ignores large files even if they are ascii. For example a ssh/shell command with putty?

I want to include .php, .txt, .inc, .html files and ignore files bigger than 100mb.
