rar is a compression and archiving tool used commonly for bittorrent.
The tool to extract files is in port archivers/rar, but it's
commercial and a proprietary format. The free tool is only capable of
extracting, not compressing. It is reported that its compression is
very good, better than bzip2, xz and can even do a reasonable job of
compressing things like already compressed video formats. (Probably
why it became popular for bittorrent.)
