Compiling under Windows for Linux

Good day... I need a program for Linux but the person who develops it does not want me to read the source code :P He is using a Windows 2000 Computer and he wants to compile his C++ Program to make it a Linux binary, but using some kind of Windows software.

Is it possible? I did a Google search but did not find anything. Where should I try to find more information?

Thank you very much for your time reading this

You could use Cygwin to emulate linux, and run GCC in it. That should work.
