I think theres a need for a gui rar archiver for the mac.

In my case I needed to transfer an iso disc image of 5 GB to a windows machine, using a portable drive formated in that format that doesn't allow files bigger than 4GB (I know!), so I wanted to split the file in smaller parts in a widely supported format, and everyone has winrar these days because of the popularity of split rar archived files.

So I would like the gui app to have the splitting ability, this one doesn't yet. And the non compression ability too, if you are splitting something that is already compressed like sound or video it doesn't make sense to waste time with further compression.

I ended up using a CLI tool, although I hate those.

rar a -m0 -v1000m

That is the command I used, it took me 15 minutes to find the right switches, searching for examples etcetera, CLI is so useless.

Searched the net and found a copy (googled it), and it is now posted to the MacUpdate servers.


Alright, thanks! I love how the MacUpdate staff is always quick to respond to users' questions, very helpful. By far my favourite Mac software site. ^_^


You're welcome, and thank you for the kind words.
