AFAIK, Doug Schaefer once stated that cmake's "Eclipse CDT4 Unix Makefile 
Generator" write the .cproject file but the structure of the file was never 
supposed to be public API of CDT and that newer versions of CDT would not 
support those generated .cprojects.

The last time I tried to import such a project, Eclipse did not even recognize 
it. It *might* work with the NXP MCUXpresso IDE mentioned in the which is 
based on CDT versions that are out of date now (eclipse 4.5). 

And BTW, the "Eclipse CDT4 Unix Makefile Generator" generates something that 
reallly looks ugly in the project explorer, IMHO.
