WinRAR the same as Linux
rar? Additional features? Missing features? Special way of handling files?
Software is available for Microsoft Windows (named WinRAR), Linux…
The context is files which are split:
Sometimes you'll download a large file and find that instead of the
single file you wanted, your folder is full of .001 .002 .003 or .r01
.r02 .r03 files. These files are part of a split RAR archive. Much
like a zip file, a RAR file is a compressed version of what you
downloaded. Rather than transmit in a single file, it's spread out
over these several files — usually to speed downloading or to
accommodate the file size limit of a commercial file storage host.
I'm not asking how to
unrar files. I'm asking: why are these files named so? Is this a Windows convention, or also Linux? Is this just a "split" file?
Not inclined to install
WINE solely to install
These specific files are named with this pattern:
foo bar - baz.rar.001
complete with the spacees and hyphens between foo, bar, baz.
Not named .r01, just 001. If that makes a difference. (?)
