The unrar command for Linux takes care of opening rar files.

Firstly, install the command with the yum install unrar command.

[root@localhost Downloads]# yum install unrar

Or this way on a Debian GNU/Linux system.

[user@debian ~]$ sudo apt-get install unrar

Then you may unpack your rar files and maintain the directory structure if there is one inside the file.

[homer@localhost Downloads]$ unrar x myfile.rar

That is how easy this is!
