LinRAR - About

LinRAR is a graphical frontend (using the QT libraries) to the command line rar program for Linux. The main aim of this project is to create an interface similar to that of WinRAR making it easier to use rar files in Linux.

This project was started because at the moment there are no rar handling applications for Linux. This is probably because rar is a shareware program which doesn't go down too well in the Linux community. In the Windows world rar files are used constantly, especially in binary newsgroups, and at the moment the only way to manage them is via the command line. This isn't very user friendly and wont help migrate users to Linux so LinRAR hopes to make it easier.
