How to Extract RAR files in Linux
In Linux we dont have a Winrar, but we have a Unrar.
Unrar is a command line decompression tool for RAR extraction in Linux.Once installed it also adds RAR support to File Roller (Archive manager for GNOME).
How to Install Unrar
# apt-get install unrar
#yum install unrar
Or you can download the Unrar tool from official Rarlab site directly and then install it.
After downloading , extract it from the tar file and use ./unrar to run Unrar.
$ tar -zxvf rarlinux-3.6.0.tar.gz
$ cd rar
Decompressing a RAR file with Unrar
Use this command to extract RAR files:
$ unrar e files.rar
Replace files.rar with the path and name of the RAR file that you want to extract.
The files will be extracted to the current directory of the RAR file.
