Hello folks, my
name is Eugene Roshal and I am a software engineer known as developer
of FAR file manager (1996 - 2000), RAR file format (since 1993), WinRAR
file archiver. I was born in Chelyabinsk, USSR on 10th of March 1972.
Graduated South Ural State university (former Chelyabinsk Technical
University). Now I earn my money as a computer programmer and a
the rar compression algorithm was owned by my elder brother Alexander.
In the year 2011 I decided to give all the mankind a gift:
simple yet powerful easy to use tool for packing digital data and
transfering through computer networks with ease.
I do not want to waste your time any more - grab the soft and use it
with pleasure ;)
If you are a computer user with intermediate or upper-intermediate
skills - just download what you need from freefiles folder. I hope
you know how to use it.
If you need some tip - here you are:
directory contains a multivolume .rar archive set - just extract it
(extract in a folder named WinRAR) by using any tool that can
uncompress rar files. Place WinRAR folder in C:\Program Files and you
are ready to use WinRAR version 3.93. If you want you can place
shortcuts to WinRAR.exe on your Desktop or anywhere else. This is the
32bit version of the program.
directory contains a multivolume .rar
archive set, but this is the 64bit version - for Windows 7 x64.
Like Michael Dell I use Linux (Ubuntu Linux). I already (Feb 2011) have
a robust mobile workstation Dell Precision M4500. After some tuning I
am happy to use 'Lucid Lynx'.
For my compression needs I use ....... of course my own rar tool. And
guess what - it started as a joke, game when I got in touch with one
polish programmer. After some time he gave me pretty funny crack I
coldn't believe will work on my machine. I used it just to prove
that it is a piece of art. It's just about 11 kilobytes programming
code, but very efficient.
to install rar for linux
3.93. Just unpack and read how to setup the program to work for you. On
Ubuntu 10.04 it works excellent :)
That's all folks !
don't worry - be happy
Some examples with console rar for linux v3.93 (under Ubuntu Linux
10.04 for instance)
If you have a file 'foobar.doc' in /home/jack/Desktop folder than to
compress it with rar you have to issue commands:
rar a -s -m5 -v2m -vn -hppassword13 probe ./foobar.doc
a: add files to archive
-s: make a solid archive
-m5: use maximum compression
-v2m: after compressing the target file if the output is big then split
it into pieces with maximal volume of each piece not exceeding 2
-vn: use old-style extensions (the multi-volume archive will be like
this: probe.r00, probe.r01, ... , probe.rar)
-hp: use a password to lock the archive and even to hide the content.
in this example the password phrase is 'password13'
The name 'probe' is the name of the archive being created.
If you want to add to the archive all the files and folders in
~/Desktop than the command should be
a -s -m5 -v2m -vn
-hppassword13 probe ./*
Later if you want to extract the content of the archive in a folder
than issue the command
rar e probe.rar (if you previously placed all the archive set in the
folder of your choice). If when you created the archive you didn't use
the switch -vn then to extract the archive the command should be
rar e probe.part1.rar
but in that case all the files in the archive will be extracted in the
folder in which you placed the archive set without preserving the
If you want after extraction from the archive all the content to
preserve the full path of the files then just replace 'e' with 'x'
rar x probe.part1.rar
