File archiver (binary port)

RAR archiver

  • RAR introduces an original compression algorithm. It provides high compression ratios on executable files, object libraries, large text files, etc.

  • RAR provides functionality for creating a ‘solid’ archive, which can raise the compression ratio by 10 - 50 over more common methods, particularly when packing large numbers of small files.

  • RAR offers the ability to create and change SFX archives using default and external SFX modules.

  • RAR offers the ability to create a multi-volume archive as SFX.

  • RAR offers a number of service functions, such as encrypting files, adding archive comments and repairing physically damaged archives.
