Subject: Re: rar2john multiple rar file parts

 I see no problems. Using command line RAR under Windows 7:
RAR 3.61   Copyright (c) 1993-2006 Alexander Roshal   14 Sep 2006
> rar a -v1000 -hpMyPass rarfile filesdir\*.*

getting 60 rar parts 977kb each
using rar2john.exe from

 > rar2john.exe rarfile.part01.rar > rar2john.exe rarfile.part10.rar 
> rar2john.exe rarfile.part60.rar 

 rarfile.part01.rar:$RAR3$*0*f04f0dd9963bd69b*8a9f6b99a352470292ee23cc67260141:0:::: rarfile.part01.rar
 rarfilepart10.rar:$RAR3$*0*8b5d156b052880a6*cf7d0c69a98b33ea8f83c85034583fc8:0:::: rarfile.part10.rar

As you can see any of rar parts work, hashes are different
I've heard there is older RAR (older than mine?!) which uses different naming scheme:

Also there is WinRar and WinZip which may work differently that command line RAR.

Hope this helps.

Meanwhile, I think we need to figure out whether this is in fact fully
unsupported or will possibly work on the very first or the very last -
just test it.  Then document the findings somewhere prominent (e.g., in
rar2john's error output).

Definitely, or at least someone to do the above.  Any takers?
