RAR is a file compression formaty similar to ZIP. It was developed by RARLABS.

See following Links which describe the format and have links to some decompressor programs:

Rar is just another compression format.

To unrar your stuff, just do the following:

- if you have a Mac under OS X : double click on the archive and it will unrar/mount on the desktop.

- if you have something else : download a freeware decompression tool/plug in
