About UniquE RAR File Library

The UniquE RAR File Library is a platform-independent, small and fast static library for decompressing RAR files (RAR archives are created with WinRAR). Full RAR v2.0 file format support of all compression methods, including multimedia compression and encoding is available.

Note: this is a library for programmers. If you want to know what a RAR file is and how it can be read, please check the F.A.Q..


This library is based on the free unrar source code of Eugene Roshal, the author of RAR and WinRAR.
