    Go and tell your boss that you know nothing about C++, and that he should hire someone else who may actually have some competence in this area.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    It depends on your OS and also definitely depends upon the actual card reader you have, but if it's anything like ISO14443 then you might be able to use the Windows Smardcard API.
    Provide more information.

    If you've been given a smart card reader to play with, the first thing to type into google would be the make/model of that particular reader.

    Manufacturers of any kind of hardware like this provide lots of information, such as SDK's to help you talk to the device, and maybe even some sample applications. Read everything you can on the card reader manufacturer website. If they have a forum like this, then signing up is a 'must' - as here you will be able to get the very specific help you're likely to need with this particular device.

    But if you don't actually know any C++ to begin with, then you should concentrate on this first.
