Console RAR version

Additionally to WinRAR you can find the file rar.exe in the distributive. This is also RAR version for Windows, but it supports only the command line text mode interface.

It supports a larger number of command line switches and commands comparing to WinRAR. Though common aspects of the command line WinRAR syntax considered in Command line interface chapter are also true for console RAR, this help file does not contain descriptions of those switches and commands, which are supported only by the console version. Please read rar.txt file for a detailed description of all console RAR features.
