Hi,

As per the subject line, is it possible to convert the Visual Studio csproj file into an eclipse project file? Is there a tool available to do so?

Do you mean .pyproj rather than .csproj?

It depends what the format of the Eclipse file is. I don't know of any tools that already exist, so if nobody else can suggest anything you may have an opportunity for a new project. It's very likely going to be a simple Python script. (I assume your interest is in .pyproj files rather than .csproj files.)

All Visual Studio project files are just XML, so it is normally easy enough to get a list of files out of them, though there's no guarantee that Eclipse can support all the same functionality so other features may be lost. If you really just want to transfer the list of files and none of the build functionality, I'm sure Eclipse has a way to generate a new project from an existing directory of code, so you may just want to use that rather than trying to convert the far more complex project.
