how do you use .par files?

I've been downloading and putting multi part archives back together off of new groups with unrar x whatever.rar. I just downloaded a multi part archive and one of the parts is messed up but I also got a bunch of PAR files. Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to fix the bad rar file with the par files?

get the software from them and then install depending on what type of Par archive you have(Par or Par2), its a simple command don't remember off the top of my head. but u can always use the man pages once install or a simple "--help" command.
