bash - unrar more than one file in separate directories

Long story short, here is the script.

#!/bin/sh for f in \*.rar do mkdir ${f%.rar} unrar e $f ${f%.rar}/ done
What does it? For every *.rar file in you current directory, a subdirectory will be created by using the filename except of '.rar'.

Just use this script on your command line.

sh ~/my/path/to/the/
Thats it, have fun :-).

It should not be that problem to adapt this script to other types of archive.
