    .rar files

    Hey, does anyone know if the most recent version of WinZip opens the .rar archives? If not, what should I get instead? (WinRAR?)

    [edit]
    Which archiving utility do you prefer? Which format is better? (.taz, .zip, .rar, etc)

    This is my signature. Remind me to change it.

    I'm fairly sure that winzip can open .rar files, but you can download WinRar here

    Well, with Winrar, you can split one rar'ed file up into several files (with the extension: .c01, .c02, etc... and can reach up to past .c99) which is widely used in ripped games...

    .rar actually is more flexible in it's usage, and often compresses the file more than a .zip

    But... .zip is more common, so I always use it instead when giving compressed files to people

    Slightly old thread, don't you think?
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]
