RarMonkey is a simple RAR archive utility that offers little to recommend it over a standard RAR tool.
Every developer who works with RAR archives undoubtedly already owns a utility that both compresses and extracts in this format. Such utilities typically offer Windows shell integration, drag and drop for files, and file association--as does RarMonkey. Most offer a Help file, and RarMonkey does, too. Many support automatically extracting multiple archives to multiple folders, as does RarMonkey. In fact, RarMonkey is just like every other RAR utility out there.
RarMonkey's one innovation appears to be the capability to use one password to open multiple archives. If this is a situation you frequently encounter, then RarMonkey may be the utility for you. If not, this utility is probably not worth the trouble. Unless, of course, you just happen to like monkeys.
RarMonkey is a Rar archive extraction utility with many handy features The program's cute, unique interface adds a bit of fun and excitement to the otherwise monotonous task of extracting archives. RarMonkey optionally integrates with the Windows Shell, associates itself with Rar files, and also supports drag-and-drop, making extracting archives a breeze. Got lots of Rar files protected with the same password? Extract them all at once and only have to enter the password one time at the start of the process. Select one destination folder for a multple archive extraction and have RarMonkey automatically create new folders on the fly under that one for each Rar archive it extracts. The new folders are named automatically after the archive being extracted. All of this allows for extracting many files at once completely unattended.
What's new in this version:
- Improved auto-update feature.
- Fixed an issue in folder selection dialog that would cause an error when selecting previously used extract folders.
