    My Mac knowlege is quite lacking. Sense OSX is UNIX based, I could probably tell you how to open the RAR archive from the command line, but I need to know what the program is.

    Off the top of my head, I would guess it would be

    [code]unrar -e <archive name>[/code]
    or
    [code]unrar -x <archive name> <path>[/code]

    So if you got a file called test.rar you would type

    [code]unrar -e test.rar[/code]
    or
    [code]unrar -x test.rar /temp/test/[/code]

    It could also have to look like this..
    [code]./unrar ....................[/code]
    Thats my guess. Typically, if you have a program for the command line, you can type
    [code]<name of program> -h|less[/code]
    and it will bring up a help screen.

    I did a quick look around, and found a GUI RAR extractor here, but I don't know what OSX it's for. Like I said, my Mac knowlege is lacking.
