Unrar is the name of two different command-line applications for extracting RAR archives.

RARLAB UnRAR[edit]

This version of UnRAR is distributed by RARLAB, the makers of the commercial WinRAR archivers. It can extract newer RAR3 archives not supported by GNA's version.

GNA UnRAR[edit]

This free software version of UnRAR is based on an old version of RARLAB's UnRAR with permission from author Eugene Roshal.[1] It is licensed under the GPL. It does not support the RAR3 format.[1]

The Unarchiver unar[edit]

The Unarchiver is a replacement for "Archive Utility.app" in Mac OS X and is free software. Its command line Version unar/lsar supports the RAR3 format and is part of many GNU/Linux Distributions. Since Version 3.6 the GNOME unarchiving utility File Roller supports unar.[2]
