How to view rar file content in Linux

The program to view and extract rar files in Linux is provided by the unrar program. It’s not installed by default in most Linux distributions, and you can use the following command to install it in Ubuntu.

$ sudo apt-get install unrar

Once installed, you can use the l argument to the program to view the content of a rar file without extracting it. An example is as the following;

$ unrar l filename.rar
