The RAR archiver. Supports multi-volume archives that can be optionally self-extracting.

TLDR

Archive a directory
$ rar a [path/to/archive_name.rar] [path/to/directory]
copy


Split the archive into parts of equal size (50M)
$ rar a -v[50M] -R [path/to/archive_name.rar] [path/to/file_or_directory]
copy


Password protect the resulting archive
$ rar a -p[password] [path/to/archive_name.rar] [path/to/file_or_directory]
copy


Encrypt file data and headers with password
$ rar a -hp[password] [path/to/archive_name.rar] [path/to/file_or_directory]
