A linux program that can handle split .rar files?

Is there a Linux program aside from Winrar that can handle split .rar files?

Rarlab has a commandline program for linux that you can find at or with "apt-get install unrar" with apt-get enabled systems.

Ark works well if you are running KDE, as the previous poster mentioned make sure you have unrar installed as well.
