Extracting rar files in Ubuntu

Strangely all the distributions of Linux that I've used don’t come with an application to decompress rar files on the command line. To install a simple application to decompress them in Ubuntu type:
sudo apt-get install unrar
Once installed you can decompress your rar file by typing:
unrar x <File>
Where <File> is the name of the file you want to decompress.
