How to extract .rar files on the mac

You can do it easily with “unrar”. For this you must have Homebrew.

To install Homebrew (if not installed in your mac):

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install.sh)"

In a terminal type:

brew install unrar

After installing unrar successfully, navigate the location of your .rar file from your terminal and run this command

unrar x <filename>

Done, now you can see the extracted file in the same location of your .rar file having the same name.

Or to list files, write:

unrar l <filename> 

and to extract single file: 

unrar e archive.rar folder/file.exe desired_location/
