How to use the Eclipse IDE in Windows with Arduino

If you're working with multiple development platforms and environments, it can help to use the same IDE to reduce the number of systems to learn and generally keep your sanity. Or you may just not like the Arduino IDE - so in either case an interesting option is to use the open-source Eclipse development tool. Modifying Eclipse to deal with Arduino via AVR-GCC and the SDK can be a difficult path, however the people from the University of Central Arkansas (in the USA) have written a detailed step-by-step tutorial on making it happen.
