WinRAR, developed by Eugene and Alexander Roshal,
is a popular shareware file archiver and data compression utility
as one of the few applications that is able to create RAR archives natively, because the encoding method is held to be proprietary.
It gives complete support for RAR (WinRAR native conversion
format) and ZIP archives, and also unpacking of ARJ, LZH, TAR,
GZ, ACE, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, EXE, 7z, and Z archives. In addition, it allows users to create self-extracting and multi-volume (split) archives.
The Latest Version.
The most recent version of the program is WinRAR 3.92 and is available for
all Windows Operative Systems, Mac OS, Linux and even for Pocket PCs
in several languages. WinRAR is one of the most popular
utility programs for compression, encryption, packaging,
and data backup.
