NAME
       unar - extract archive file contents

SYNOPSIS
       unar [OPTION]... ARCHIVE [FILE]...

DESCRIPTION
       Extract FILEs or the contents of ARCHIVE.

OPTIONS
       -o, -output-directory DIRECTORY
              The directory to write the contents of the archive to.  Defaults
              to the current directory.

       -f, -force-overwrite
              Always overwrite files when a file to be unpacked already exists
              on disk.  By default, the program asks the user if possible,
              otherwise skips the file.

       -r, -force-rename
              Always rename files when a file to be unpacked already exists on
              disk.

       -s, -force-skip
              Always skip files when a file to be unpacked already exists on
              disk.

       -d, -force-directory
              Always create a containing directory for the contents of the
              unpacked archive.  By default, a directory is created if there is
              more than one top-level file or folder.

       -D, -no-directory
              Never create a containing directory for the contents of the
              unpacked archive.

       -p, -password PASSWORD
              The password to use for decrypting protected archives.

       -e, -encoding ENCODING
              The encoding to use for filenames in the archive, when it is not
              known.  If not specified, the program attempts to auto-detect the
              encoding used.  Use "help" or "list" as the argument to give a
              listing of all supported encodings.

       -E, -password-encoding ENCODING
              The encoding to use for the password for the archive, when it is
              not known.  If not specified, then either the encoding given by
              the -encoding option or the auto-detected encoding is used.

       -i, -indexes
              Instead of specifying the files to list as filenames or wildcard
              patterns, specify them as indexes, as output by lsar.

       -nr, -no-recursion
              Do not attempt to extract archives contained in other archives.
              For instance, when unpacking a .tar.gz file, only unpack the .tar
              file and not its contents.

       -t, -copy-time
              Copy the file modification time from the archive file to the
              containing directory, if one is created.

       -k, -forks visible|hidden|skip
              How to handle Mac OS resource forks.  visible creates AppleDouble
              files with the extension ".rsrc", hidden creates AppleDouble files
              with the prefix "._", and skip discards all resource forks.
              Defaults to visible.

       -q, -quiet
              Run in quiet mode.

       -v, -version
              Print version and exit.

       -h, -help
              Display help information.
