Re: unrar a file in hp-ux

You will have to find and install a program that can handle rar files.

Have a look at this thread:

Use another OS to unrar the file and transfer it. If needed, zip or tar and gzip it.

;-)

Hope this helps!

Uh, get "unrar" working? What's the problem
with it? I haven't tried it on HP-UX, but
I got it working on VMS, so how tough could
it be on HP-UX?

Re: unrar a file in hp-ux

If you have any interest to use PHP, you can use Rar::extract.

Firstly you have to build rar extention from its source code and
install rar.sl to Apache PHP extention directory. Secondly you have to
create a simple php script such as
http://us3.php.net/manual/en/function.rar-extract.php.

http://pecl.php.net/package/rar

Good luck !!
