It will be helpful if there was a program for puppy linux to open .rar archives/files. Presently, I need to use windows to do this.

Why install anything extra? Puppy 5.x already contains the Linux "rar" utility. Do this -
Code:
cd /path/to/MYrarARCHIVE.rar
rar x MYrarARCHIVE.rar

Done.

Obviously replace "MYrarARCHIVE.rar" with your real RAR archive filename.

@tempestous: Am I missing something on here or its 'unrar' instead of 'rar'?

"rar" and "unrar" will both do the job.

"unrar" will decompress.
"rar" will compress and decompress. Obviously "rar" is a larger executable.

Oops, I have a lot of development utilities installed on my Puppy 5.1 hard drive.
I just booted to the Puppy 5.1 CD now, and I see that it has neither rar nor unrar.

I think I installed the official version of rar/unrar from
http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm
but I see that while unrar is freeware, rar is trialware and cannot be redistributed.

Sorry for the confusion.
Here's the latest version of unrar, compiled from Ubuntu-supplied source code.
unrar-4.0.3.pet

Another alternative is to install and use Peazip which seems to handle rar compressed files just fine.

A cool thing about PeaZip is that you can extract massively a lot of compressed files.

@tempestous: Thanks for the pet! Very Happy
