Question How to extract multi-part rar files from the command line??


I know there is a way to do this, I was successful a few days ago but my history isn't showing the command (had multiple terminal tabs open ).. I have a folder of 1,000+ files so about 50 files to extract. I want to be able to enter a command and have it go through all the files in the folder.

For multipart rar files I usually use the unrar command on the first file of a series and it extracts the complete series.

Thanks. That is the first part. I used the command "unrar e filename.r00" or "unrar e filename.rar" and it works for the file.

Now how do I get it to do all the files in the folder.
I have tried:
"unrar e filename[1..20].r00"
"unrar e filename{1..20}.r00"
"unrar e filename*.r00"

and none of those work..

Try it with
Code:
for i in {1..20}
do
   unrar filename$i.r00
done
