this might be a newbies question, i have a lot of image files with different extension (*.jpg, *.png) and i want to convert it to cbr file format.

Is there a way to achieve this or are there command to do this ? (preferably using terminal)

after reading the wiki page , it turns out that cbr is rar file format. so, the solution is very simple :

sudo apt-get install rar       # install rar
rar a <comic_name>.cbr *.jpg   # compress it and add to cbr

very simple. hopefully, this will be helpful to someone. thx to anyone who has read this article.
