Replace unrar-free by 7zip

Asked by katossi

Have you considered replacing unrar-free by p7zip to uncompress .rar files?
Both are open source but unrar-free performance is horrible and p7zip supports multithreading. With such huge rar files as the uncompressed by wiithon and with multicore machines, the time required would be reduced in orders of magnitude!

Me parece buena idea, perdona por no contestar cuando lo lei, la estudiare cuando acabe los examanes. Más bien estudiare el código fuente de 7zip para ver como comunicarlo con wiithon para que nos informe del progreso de descompresión.

Un saludo
