    >how do I know the C++ can write this particular programme I have in mind...
    I can translate this two ways, so I'll answer them both:

    Q: "How do I know that the program I have in mind can be written in C++?"
    A: Damn near anything can be written in C++. It's very powerful, and has a broad range of application. The things that aren't possible in C++ are so low level and basic (parts of a bootloader, for example) that you have no other choice but to resort to assembly language.

    Q: "How do I learn the parts of C++ necessary to write the program I have in mind?"
    A: Get a good tutorial book, a good reference book, and practice. You won't know what to use until you know what's available.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    There is no limit to what C/C++ by can do, only what your imagination is bound to, so long as you know how to do it.

    Well, the tutorials are not a substitute for a real book. They mention few things and not in a lot of detail.
