I would like to know if there are any libraries (dll) or delphi components which use the RAR compression.  I am attempting to make a program which will utilize the compression and decompression of RAR files.  Please notify me of any sites, help, or suggests on this topic.

Watch Question

If you failed to find such libraries, maybe you can try to run
the DOS rar.exe from Delphi
By this way, you can take full advantages of the well-known

try contacting Eugene Roshal (roshal@geocities.com), the original author of RAR.


I'm trying to email him but I doubt that he will just GIVE me the library for free.
get WinRAR from: http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Lakes/2797/

there's a DLL (unrardll.dll) with documentation on it.
