I've got a quad core Intel processor. I've got a big file split into little ones as RAR files,
foo.r01, etc. which the RAR program extracts into one file/directory. Is there a RAR program that I can specify like "use four cores" in the extract process? At the moment it sits there using 100% of one core. I recognise the bottleneck might be my hard drive anyway, but I don't see a lot of HD usage and suspect the decompression process is more intensive than waiting on I/O.
For example, GNU Make accepts a (
-j, I think) argument to tell it how many cores to use, which I used to compile PHP 6 really quickly.
