I have a page where I cover this a bit. http://home.roadrunner.com/~computertaijutsu/dvds.html (there's a section on rar) At any rate, on my VERY informal benchmarks, just using the time command, it was faster. The syntax for that is identical to rar/unrar 7z e <first file in the rar series>, so for example 7z e 01.rar Will unrar a section of rar files. -- Scott Robbins PGP keyID EB3467D6 ( 1B48 077D 66F6 9DB0 FDC2 A409 FA54 EB34 67D6 ) gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys EB3467D6 Xander: Yep, vampires are real.
