Unzip RAR files


#1

I’ve downloaded a large file into my directory. the file is in RAR format. Now I need to unzip the file. I know you can use unzip command for zip files, but I dont have any idea how to unzip RAR files. is there any specific command for RAR files.

for your information I’m using Putty SSH client.

thanks
