Re: [cdt-dev] import a non-eclipse project as CDT project

1) .cproject file is an internal interface. Even worse, it's not documented.
2) What I would do is write an Eclipse plug-in that parses the external project and calls the CDT APIs to create the project properly. Check out the import existing makefile project wizard as an example, NewMakeProjFromExisting.

Hope that helps,

Subject: [cdt-dev] import a non-eclipse project as CDT project

hi guys!

I want to implement an importer that imports a c++ project 
of Visual-studio like project format , to CDT Eclipse Environment with
buildDefinitions extension that I implemented,

In order to to this i thought to parse the external project and generate .cproject and .project files, witch can be imported in to Eclipse CDT.

1) where can i find a decent description of .cproject file?
2) am i going the right way? maybe there is a better way to implement such importer of a non-eclipse project with my own tool-chain to eclipse CDT?

Thank you for your time!
