    command line rar password recovery

    I have a rar archive I need to try to recover the password from. Currently im using a windows based program, but my fastest machines are my *nix boxes.

    Does anyone know of a command line based recovery tool I could use to speed things up a bit?

    Ive never got john the ripper working with anything! But thanks.

    I tried the first one Jenko22 posted, but it would 'find' the password after only about 5 mins each time, false positives all over.
