I'm looking for a way to import C++-Builder projects into Eclipse. C++-Builder doesn't provide/create makefiles.
I recently started working for a company that's using CodeGear RAD Studio 2007 (formerly Borland C++-Builder, nowadays owned by Embarcadero). Since this relict of ancient software design is simply horrible to work with, I'm looking for an alternative. A friend suggested Eclipse, and what I've seen so far looks excellent.
(Beware! I'm a total Eclipse noob, so perhaps I'm not telling facts here!) In order to work with a C++ project in Eclipse, I need to import the makefile. Problem is: C++-Builder doesn't use makefiles and has no way to create them either. Searching the net for a way to convert .cbproj to makefile resulted in this: "This feature has been removed because the format of the project file has been changed to support msbuild. Command line builds of projects can now be done directly form the .cbproj file by calling it with msbuild like this: msbuild /t:build project1.cbproj" (from the Embarcadero support site, bug#68149)
So, I'm kinda stuck here and figured maybe someone else has figured that out already (I can't be the only one getting nightmares from using C++Builder) or can help me figure out how to get this working (PLEASE!!)...
Note: I do not neccessarily need to compile the project from within Eclipse (nice2have). However, I do need symbolic referencing, refactoring functions and syntax-highlighting of methods and variables a.s.f.
Thanks for reading!
