Where can I find shell extensions to browse RAR compressed files?

Hi, all.

Windows XP comes with a shell extension that allows for browsing ZIP files as if
they were folders (compressed folders shell extension). Is there the same for
RAR archives? And where can I find such extensions? Or even C++ source files
like Shell Extension samples for Windows XP.

Thanks in advance,
Vince C.

Dear Vince,

You can also install WinRAR program. WinRAR is a 32-bit Windows version of
RAR Archiver, an archiver and archive manager. RAR files can usually
compress content 8 percent to 15 percent more than ZIP files. WinRAR's main
features include strong general and multimedia compression, the ability to
process non-RAR archive formats, ZIP compression and decompression, long
filename support, programmable self-extracting archives (SFX), damaged
archive repair, authenticity verification, embedded file comments, and
encryption. Unicode is supported in archive filenames, allowing non-English
filenames to be handled painlessly.
