cracking rar file passwords

Does anyone know a free rar file password cracker. I have zipped my files into a rar but forgotten the password. These is a windows program which does it but thats not free. I dont mind if it runs in linux only as long as it gets the job done

Hehe, i don't think there is, as far as i know most craking
software is for windows, but you can try emulating it with
wine. And why did you encrypt the archive?
