That is even better, way better!

For rar -hp archives we do this:


The "user name" field is filename without path. The last field (just beyond where Single mode looks) is the full path name.

On a side note, I place "type" in the uid field too. This is so you can put all your rar files in a single infile, but then attack only a certain type (-hp or -p) using the -user option. It's a hack, but it works fine :)
