Use system() with however you unpack rar files on your OS. .rar files
are archives, not files you could usefully read into R (just like tar
and zip archives). At least, the commonest such files are, and those
are already pretty uncommon.
There are several ways to unpack on Windows, at least 7-zip, WinZip,
UnRAR (2x), WinRAR.
