How to extract files in Shell:


Extracting is simple. From the shale, navigate to the folder where the arhive(rar,zip etc.) are located (type "cd /path/to/folder" for example without quotes). Then, type:

7z x YourFileName.rar

If your archive is split into multiple volumes, specify the lowest numbered volume.

7z x YourFileName.7z.001

If you want to extract to another location simply add "-o" follow by that location to the end of the command:

7z x FileName.7z -o/home/user/Desktop/foldername
