How to find the first file in multi .rar pack

Feb 22, 2010 at 5:08 PM

I've couple of rared applications (rar, r01, r02) or (001,002,003) or (something01.rar, something02.rar, something03.rar).


How to find out which rar is the the first one (since extraction seems to be possible even if i choose the middle one but it only unpacks that one file). Right now i am assuming that if there's only 01.rar it unpacks it first, if there's r01 it checks for rar and if extension is number it searches for lowest. But surely that's not the way to go.


How could i find the right one?

 

With regards,

7-zip dll does not offer any methods to find the first file in multu-rar archives. The simple search for the lowest number is a small workaround of mine. You can implement it yourself :)
