AR, Ar or ar may refer to:
- The letter R
The archiver, also known simply as ar, is a Unix utility that maintains groups of files as a single archive file. Today, ar is generally used only to create and update static library files that the link editor or linker uses and for generating .deb packages for the Debian family; it can be used to create archives for any purpose, but has been largely replaced by tar for purposes other than static libraries. An implementation of ar is included as one of the GNU Binutils.
In the Linux Standard Base, ar has been deprecated and is expected to disappear in a future release of that Standard. The rationale provided was that "the LSB does not include software development utilities nor does it specify .o and .a file formats."
Ar is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible several times as a city of ancient Moab . While the exact location is unknown, it is likely to have been in the southern part of the Arnon Valley, which is the present day Wadi Mujib gorge in Jordan. The city was one of Moab's most prominent, being listed by the prophet Isaiah in his denunciation of the Moabite nation . Matthew Poole suggested that "the city was seated in an island in the middle of the river".
The Bible speaks of Ar as being captured by the Amorite King Sihon .
Modern scholars believe that the word "Ar" likely meant "city".
