It might be possible to create the partition tables of different types, if you have a utility that is platform independent... but currently thr are no tools as such, according to my knowledge.......

Why you ask this ?

There are existing tools that I would use before reaching for an platform agnostic solution.

-> Is there any reason not to use tools that exist today?
