Title: Plugin for MS's .sln project files
Post by: SartriX on May 21, 2005, 02:58:45 pm
After having been asked to do some work on a HalfLife2 mod, I noticed it supplied .sln files.  I also believe devcpp (and ofcourse msvc) use these files.

So, to enhance the possiblity for C::B people and non-C::B people to cooperate, or even just for them to switch to C::B even with current projects, it would be nice if there was a plugin that allows you to import a .sln file and have it build a workspace and targets from there. At a later stage an export option could be added as well and other such project files might be supported.

Would like to make such a plugin myself, but thing is, I don't got msvc to generate files for testing. Is there's anyone willing to work on such a plugin or can give me a pointer as to where to look for the .sln's specification?

So... exactly what's wrong with Project->Import->MS Visual Studio solution? :)

(Not that I would know how well it works, not having VS)

Gah... I should open my eyes and look around when I install an update...
I just rather expected such option as a plugin or under file -> import or file -> new project , import, or something like that.

[edit]
Used it, been getting errors while importing. Will go write up a bugreport.
