.cproject file format [message #645843] Mon, 20 December 2010 19:00 Go to next message

We manage a C++ code of abour 1 million lines, using our own tools.

We so have a private tool which creates Makefile.

I'm trying to extend this tool so that it can create a set of .project and .cproject file

So I'm looking for a description of the .cproject format in order to build it correctly. I tried various things, but the only thing it does is that it automatically parse the root dir of our project, which is not what I want to do...

I already have all dependencies, source files, header files and targets to build.

The only thing I need to know is how to create a correct .cproject file.

I think it should be described somewhere, but after an extensive search, I was not able to find such a description.

Can someone help me ?

Best regards,

I'm looking for information on the project format used by eclipse as well. Like the OP, after some extensive search that didn't turn any useful info up, I'm force to inquire about it here in hopes of an answer.

Is there any documentation on this?

I think you should try the cdt-dev mailing list.

cmake is interesting but somehow it does not really do what i want..
I need to genereate things out of the existing Makefiles which are the only files properly supported..... you know how it is in large projects....
