There is an Eclipse CDT 4.0 generator being developed on top of the Makefile generators available now (i.e., "Unix Makefiles", "MinGW Makefiles", "MSYS Makefiles", and maybe "NMake Makefiles").
 
 
 
With this generator it is possible to create a set of .project/.cproject files that can be imported in Eclipse as an "Existing Eclipse project".
 
 
 
Since August 1st the Eclipse generator is included in CMake cvs.
 
 
 
If you would like to monitor the changes to the EclipseCDT4 support, you can view the following links which contain the cvs history log for changes to the two main files:
 
* [http://www.cmake.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/Source/cmExtraEclipseCDT4Generator.h?root=CMake&view=log cmExtraEclipseCDT4Generator.h]
 
 
 
* [http://www.cmake.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/Source/cmExtraEclipseCDT4Generator.cxx?root=CMake&view=log cmExtraEclipseCDT4Generator.cxx]

==Discussion about Eclipse CDT4 Generator limitations==
 
 
 
Eclipse assume project files (i.e. .project and .cproject) ''must
 
be at the root of the project tree'' '''and''' a project
 
may be handled by a versioning system (CVS, SVN, ...) iff
 
''the root project tree is''.
 
 
 
This assumption clashes with the fact that CMake generated files
 
should ''stay in the build tree'' whereas source files (which are usually those handled
 
by a versioning system) reside ''in the source tree''.
 
 
 
There has been a fair amount of discussion regarding this '''problem'''
 
of the Eclipse CDT4 Generator:
