rar - Compression and decompression program rar
Compression and decompression program.
includes version 2.7.1 and 5.3.0
by Larence R. Rogers (2015-11-18):
* Release 5.3.0-1
1. Directory wildcards are allowed in RAR command line in file names to
archive. For example:
rar a backup c:\backup\2015*\*
Recursion is enabled automatically for such directory wildcards
even if -r switch is not specified.
2. New 'R' object for -sc switch defines encoding of console
RAR messages sent to redirected files and pipes. For example:
rar lb -scur data > list.txt
will produce Unicode list.txt with archived file names.
3. Console RAR "l" and "v" commands display file time in YYYY-MM-DD
4. "Test" command also verifies contents of NTFS alternate data streams
in RAR 3.x - 5.x archives. Previously their contents was checked
only during extraction command.
5. Bugs fixed:
a) console RAR crashed instead of displaying an overwrite prompt
when attempting to add files to already existing volumes;
b) console RAR "lt" command did not display seconds in file timestamp.
