linux default iconRAR for Linux Publisher's description

RAR is a powerful archive manager.

RAR is a powerful archive manager.

RAR software is a powerful tool allowing you to manage and control archive files. Console RAR supports archives only in RAR format, the names of which usually have a ".rar" extension. ZIP and other formats are not supported. Windows users may install GUI RAR version - WinRAR, which is able to process much more archive types.

Here are some key features of "RAR":

В· RAR introduces an original compression algorithm. It allows higher compression ratios than other PC archiving tools, especially on executable files, object libraries, large text files, etc.
В· RAR offers an optional compression algorithm highly optimized for multimedia data.
В· RAR provides functionality for creating a 'solid' archive, which can raise the compression ratio by 10% - 50% over more common methods, particularly when packing large numbers of small files.
В· RAR offers the ability to create and change SFX archives using default and external SFX modules.
В· RAR offers the ability to create a multi-volume archive as SFX.
В· RAR offers a number of service functions, such as setting a password, adding archive and file comments. Even physically damaged archives may be repaired and an archive may be locked to prevent further changes. Authenticity information may be added for additional security and RAR will store information on the last update and name of the archive.


В· 40 day free trial

What's New in This Release:

В· WinRAR did not store NTFS "Compressed" attribute, when creating RAR archives;
В· WinRAR crashed in command line mode if @filelist parameter was present and 'filelist' did not exist. This bug affected only WinRAR.exe, not RAR.exe;
В· if -x*\somefolder\* exclusion mask was specified when archiving and if name of current folder contained 'somefolder', WinRAR excluded all files and stopped creating an archive;
В· GUI self-extracting archives did not work in Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE).
