[email protected]:~# man unrar-nonfree UNRAR(1) RAR archiver UNRAR(1) NAME unrar - extract files from rar archives SYNOPSIS unrar command [-switch ...] archive [file ...] [@listfiles ...] [path ...] [path_to_extract/] DESCRIPTION This manual page documents briefly the unrar command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution be- cause the original program does not have a manual page. Commands and options described here are as of unrar 6.0. USAGE archive Archive file name in RAR or other supported format. If archive file uses RAR multiple volume format, specify only first volume file name as archive file name. file ... File path name to extract. You can specify more path names at one time. @listfiles ... If argument starts with "@", unrar uses listfile as file path list file. This list file includes file path list to extract from archive file. You can use 2 or more list files at one time. File list uses one line for one file path. And blank line is ignored. This file is used to extract many file path names in one time that your shell can't accept. path_to_extract If last argument is ended with "/", unrar uses path_to_extract as file extraction target path.
