Unzip RAR files

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

hello,

unrar did not do the trick. did tried earlier.

however “rar e” did the trick well. thank you very much for your help.

Need to learn more unix command, I presume :slight_smile:
