Best program to unrar

I thought OSX brought it's own unrar-er. But I downloaded a large file and it came in parts. When I click on it, it asks me to choose a program. I'm new with macs, so I have no idea.

Is there a program to download?

I have only used stuffit for mac, and it works fine for me.

Apple - Downloads - System/Disk Utilities - StuffIt Expander

Does it provide .zip support as well? Or .rar. I need to be able to do both.

I'm a new mac user too (august) and I find that rar and zip files are tricky on mac and no one program works all the time. Therefore I use UnrarX for rar part files (.r01, .r02...), and stuffit for all other zip and rar files. Split & Concat is great for stitching files together (.01, .02, .03...).

StuffIt Expander - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It should do what you need it to do.

Unarchiver might fit the bill:
The Unarchiver 1.6.1 - MacUpdate

Alternatively, if you're a usenet/netnews user, MacPar Deluxe is a terrific all-in-one custom-designed utility for downloads:
MacPAR deLuxe 3.8 - MacUpdate

I also find that stuffit expander doesn't work for many rar files.
I use The Unarchiver and it has never failed me.
Just associate each type of file with a specific application and all you ever have to do is double click the file to open it - the Mac launches the appropriate application automatically.

This is the one I have been using for the past couple of years. Works great, price is right and they don't bug you to upgrade to their free product like Stuffit does.
