I have some files with korean filenames that I've compressed into a rar file using winrar on my windows XP system, and now I want to be able to access them in a php script on a linux system.  The filenames appear as something like Ÿ???佺/???α???01.txt so they're not practical in an extracted form.  I'd like to be able to extract one of the files at a time to a specified filename like temp.txt, and then access them with my script.  The problem is, the rar functions sabatage the filenames to be something more like A,3aAa10/3 0I+auO01.txt, so I can't do matches on the filenames because I'm searching for the korean unicode when rar_list returns a list of filenames that are completely wrong.

Reproduce code:
place a folder/file like Ÿ???佺/???α???01.txt into a rar file using windows.  run the rar_open and rar_list functions on the rar file and observe how different the filenames become.

Expected result:
I would expect a rar object that return "Ÿ???佺/???α???01.txt" when you call getName() on that same rar object.

Actual result:
getName() returns a value such as "A,3aAa10/3 0I+auO01.txt" instead of the proper unicode.

Are you able to work with such files using unrar?
