I have an RMAN backup that is taken on 19th january with: BACKUP DATABASE PLUS ARCHIVELOG command. Now I need to restore Archived logs from that backupset to some other OS directory. Is there any way to extract Archived Log files from that backup?

Finally, an intelligent question! I am beginning to despair for the quality of this site. – Gaius Feb 25 '15 at 12:49

You probably need to use catalog, because a long time passed since January.

rman target / catalog rman_catalog_user@rman_catalog_db

  SET ARCHIVELOG DESTINATION TO '/oracle/temp_restore';
  RESTORE ARCHIVELOG FROM TIME = "to_date('2014-01-19 19:20:00','YYYY-DD-MM HH24:MI:SS')"  
                    UNTIL TIME = "to_date('2014-01-19 20:00:00','YYYY-DD-MM HH24:MI:SS')";
