Just received a password protected rar file in my Linux box and have no idea how to extract it using command line. The reason I need to extract this password protected rar file thru command line is because there is no GUI install in this low end Linux box. As google is my best friend, i found a very simple way to extract password protected rar file.
To extract password rar file in Linux, follow the steps below:-
- Login to your Terminal and issue the command below:-
rar e file-to-be-extract.rar
if you see “rar: command not found” then you might need to install rar thru apt-get or yum.
- Once you entered, system will prompt you for password. Enter the password and the rar file will be extracted. It’s tat simple!
