SYNOPSIS

unar [OPTION]... ARCHIVE [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION

Extract FILEs or the contents of ARCHIVE.

OPTIONS

-o, -output-directory DIRECTORY
  The directory to write the contents of the archive to. Defaults to the current directory.
-f, -force-overwrite
  Always overwrite files when a file to be unpacked already exists on disk. By default, the program asks the user if possible, otherwise skips the file.
-r, -force-rename
  Always rename files when a file to be unpacked already exists on disk.
-s, -force-skip
  Always skip files when a file to be unpacked already exists on disk.
-d, -force-directory
  Always create a containing directory for the contents of the unpacked archive. By default, a directory is created if there is more than one top-level file or folder.
-D, -no-directory
  Never create a containing directory for the contents of the unpacked archive.
-p, -password PASSWORD
  The password to use for decrypting protected archives.
-e, -encoding ENCODING
  The encoding to use for filenames in the archive, when it is not known. If not specified, the program attempts to auto-detect the encoding used. Use "help" or "list" as the argument to give a listing of all supported encodings.
-E, -password-encoding ENCODING
  The encoding to use for the password for the archive, when it is not known. If not specified, then either the encoding given by the -encoding option or the auto-detected encoding is used.
-i, -indexes
  Instead of specifying the files to list as filenames or wildcard patterns, specify them as indexes, as output by lsar.
-nr, -no-recursion
  Do not attempt to extract archives contained in other archives. For instance, when unpacking a .tar.gz file, only unpack the .tar file and not its contents.
-t, -copy-time
  Copy the file modification time from the archive file to the containing directory, if one is created.
-k, -forks visible|hidden|skip
  How to handle Mac OS resource forks. visible creates AppleDouble files with the extension ".rsrc", hidden creates AppleDouble files with the prefix "._", and skip discards all resource forks. Defaults to visible.
-q, -quiet
  Run in quiet mode.
-h, -help Display help information.
