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.

Thanks

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
utility.
