Unrar gives error while trying to extract file

kish@box:/mnt/hda12/files$ unrar e files.rar
unrar: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


This is what the man pages had to say ...
After the program name comes a command and then optional switches with dashes before them. A sum-
mary of commands is included below. For a complete description, run unrar without options.

e Extract files to current directory.
How do I run unrar , and why I get this error while trying to extract the files.rar file.
Is the dependency missing ?? or is something else wrong ??
Clairfy and help .......

You need to install the libstdc++6-0 package (The GNU Standard C++ Library v3).

Check unrar -h or --help. It should give you an indication of how to use it.

Most likely libstdc++ is not missing, you may have the wrong version installed. I see you have knoppix as your distro. If this is the case, you may not have any of the development libs installed on the live cd. If that's not right, someone please correct this.
