How to setup GCC-based toolchain

Hello,

 

I'm looking for some guidance on programming for LPC modules (especially LPC1768) and have a few questions:

 

  1. There are recent builds of GCC toolchain available for these architectures (GNU Arm Embedded Toolchain – Arm Developer ). Where I can find the headers, libraries, and drivers for a specific LPC module from NXP website?
  2. Is there any limitations on the available C++ features in those toolchains (e.g. C++ threads, mutexes)? The Keil has the concept of "Task" for threading. How can multi-threading can be accomplished with these generic GCC toolchains?
  3. What tools do you recommend that provides a recent compiler support (e.g. C++14) together with support for hardware/debugging? Some options that come to my mind:
