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


This free software is a Windows command-line version of UnRAR, created by RARlab, the same company that created the commercial WinRAR software.[1] This software can extract newer RAR v5.0 file archives that are not supported by competitors.

GNA UnRAR[edit]

This free software is a Linux version of UnRAR that is based on an old version of RARLAB's UnRAR with permission from author Eugene Roshal.[2] It is licensed under the GPL. It does not support the RAR3 format.[2]
