i'm using this command to unrar folders:

for file in *.part01.rar; do unrar x ${file}; done;

but i don't know where to add the password in this command. because right now, this command wants the password for every archive in that folder.



From man unrar:

  Set password.

So your line would be something like:

for file in *.part01.rar; do unrar x -p<password> ${file}; done;

I only unrar the first part (when there are part01.rar, part02.rar, etc.) and it goes itself for the rest of the files.

unrar x An_Awesome_Movie.part01.rar -ppassword

    sure it is -ppassword not -p password ? also perhaps clarify which rar you use, there are two in the reposittories. – db429 Nov 29 '18 at 1:21
  • Sure, -pYOUPASS, so you don't have to type it on a prompt later. I've found two, unrar-free and unrar. I use unrar. If I type just unrar appears a menu that says: "UNRAR 5.30 beta 2 freeware". – Is Ma Nov 29 '18 at 13:52
