    How to use unrar???


    Ok, i've looked everywhere, and the unrar help output is useless to me as i've tried doing what is says and all it does is spit "Can't do this" errors at me. Sorry if i sound bitter, but it's early for me..

    So, what is the proper order to put the commands in?

    so far i've gotten:

    unrar -evx

    and then i get errors with the other things.

    i don't think i need any switches, so how do i omit them, and what the hell is the difference from <archive> <files...> and <@listfiles...>

    path to extract seems simple enough- that's where i want the files to go when extracted, right?

    please help me!!!

    Try "unrar x whatever.rar" or "unrar x -ad whatever.rar".
