Hi all,
 
I intend to write a cad program like PSpice. In my case, it's more like a Network Communication System Design Tool.
However, I've no experience in this type of programming.
Will programming in C/C++ be feasible?
Could anyone guide me to the necessary guides or books?
Are there any guides or tutorial available online?
e.g. how to write those CAD functions like joining up components, wire arrangement, or letting the user drag and drop components.
Thanks.

Your profile doesn't tell us anything about your experience. Yes, almost everything can be done in C/C++, but why do you think these companies out there charge you a lot of money for CAD software? Your question "how to write those CAD functions like joining up components ..." plus the management of these components is the critical point. You need experience in that business and manpower. It is not enough to just want to write a software. The books and online tutorial you will see here will be "how to use", not "How to build" guides.
So my advice would be: if you have to ask these very basic questions, start very low level and don't expect to finish that job alone. Even more: write a very explicit specification for yourself what you want to accomplish so you know what you have to understand or you will loose track of the project very soon.
Unfortunatelly not for 20,000 points people could teach you how to do it in this forum.
