Re: How to umcompress rar file?

Hi,

Not sure, but .rar is a pretty winblows-specific compression type.
But it's also a pdeudo-zip type, so the UNIX zip utility might handle it.

HTH,

I've never heard of RAR filetypes on HP-UX. I know you can unncompress them using WinRAR on Windows, and then transfer the files over to HP-UX
Cooperation is doing with a smile what you have to do anyhow.

PowerArchiver can deal with rar. Not sure if it runs on *nix. Let's try ...

Yes, it does, at least my version 8.60.00 on SuSE 8.2

Re: How to umcompress rar file?

I'm not sure about HP-UX but there's an unrar for linux so there might be a chance to find something similar for other unix systems.

linux unrar can be downloaded from http://www.rarlab.com/rar/rarlinux-3.2.0.tar.gz

did a quick search and it seems this page has links to an HPUX package and source code :

or maybe this one ? http://www.rar.cz/files/rarhp

well that's lots of stuff to try, I hope one of them will work :)

Hi,

There is RAR for Linux.... You can search and find it. But HP-UX? I have no idea.
