    I've tried a few different un-archiving apps such unrarx, unacex, The Unarchiver (which I'm currently using) but none of them AFAIK let you look at the contents of an archive and extract a single file like WinRar does on a PC.

    Is there anything available for the Mac with this functionality?

    i'm pretty sure stuffit expander does but, then again, i didn't really have time to look, but i know for a fact it unarchives .rar files.

    You cannot choose which individual file(s) you want to extract...

    Where in the original post? I'd have to check his profile to find it out otherwise.

    I haven't seen an extractor program for OS X that does individual files. The pay version of Stuffit might.
