auto-unrar

Smart Perl script (for Linux) to auto unrar/extract a directory structure containing many RAR archives.

Features

  • extract multipart archives
  • handle all three multipart archives naming conventions ** .part1.rar, .part2.rar, ... ** .rar, .r00, .r01, ... ** .001, .002, ...
  • duplicate directory structure tree
  • move/rename normal files (no rar archives)
  • check minimum free space on device
  • can delete archives if extracted ok
  • save status to file
    • so already extracted archives aren't extracted again
    • trying extract again only if some change found
  • keypress features during run ( p...pause, c...continue, q...quit )
  • smart error handling
    • maintain undo actions list for recovery to initial state
    • sleep (increment time to sleep) and try again
    • revert to initial state if error found during extraction of directory
  • can be configured to run periodically (e.g. from cron) to incrementally extract RAR archives
    • check if there is any change inside directory
  • support for rsync integration
    • generate rsync exclude list (basedir_deep configuration option is used)
    • check time of last modification of base directories (recursively)
    • respect minimum time since last change (let rsync finish his job)
  • preserve mtime of files and directories where possible
  • has own test suite
  • tested on many big archives
  • debug and verbose output support

Tested on Linux only. Also see ToDo list inside source code bin/auto-unrar.pl.
