    The Unarchiver will open them for you. This is a very good program and can handled almost any file compression format. Always worth installing this anyway.

    Or

    UnRarX

    I would like an app like this too. So far, I've been using the unarchiver but I need an app with an interface so I can drag and drop files into existing zip and rar files.

    To open password protected RAR files on the Mac, use either
    - RAR Expander (works most of the time) or
    - Unarchiver (if RAR Expander doesn't not work)
    and enter the password.

    Is typically not cool to modify RAR files that are made for distribution. If you must add files, expand, recompress and save as different file name.

    What's wrong with modifying rar files for redistribution? :confused:

    I would just like to find a mac program that gives me an interface to control individual files that are inside of a compressed zip or rar file. I don't want to have to extract and repackage the entire thing like I am forced to do now.
