I want to make a rar file(not tar or gzip) with several parts in linux shell, how is it possible ?
for example my file is : m.avi - 500mb
I want this :
m.part1.rar 250mb m.part2.rar 250mb

Ah I misunderstood, for parting rar files you have to do the following. First make sure you have rar installed. Then use the following command:
rar a -v250000k /path/m.splitted.rar /path/m.avi
a for append, -v for the size in kilobytes. This would create /path/m.splitted.part001.rar, /path/m.splitted.part002.rar, etc.
If you want the old naming scheme (m.splitted.rar as the first file, then m.splitted.r01, m.splitted.r02, etc.) you should use -vn instead of -v. See /usr/share/doc/rar/rar.txt for more information.
